Re: Soccer in Crown Heights

It's good to see harmony coming to an area that was filled w/so much violence & racial tension 30-40 years ago. All that stuff started not long after I moved from Brooklyn to Suffolk Co.  Go Soccer!!

Re: Soccer in Crown Heights

I never tried my hand at soccer when I was a young man. I don't even remember it being played in any of the schools. I did play HS football for a short time though.... made the team alright  but I had trouble making practice on a regular basis. The captain gave me a choice, my part time job or the football team. I stayed with my part time job.
