Harrison's goalkeeping debut

My grandson loves football. He's chosen to be in goal. His debut, the team lost 11-0 and he was devastated. So my son, Harrison's daddy, edited his video to show his saves and uploaded it to Twitter for comments. The result was a "Twitter Moment" (on the day Aretha Franklin passed, that's some achievement).

The video has been seen over a million times and comments posted by famous goalkeepers among others, all encouraging and one even called him "champion", which is what I heard spiritually when I first saw him. Now the story is featured on their local BBC News website. Could I be more proud of my wonderful son and my amazing grandson? smiley - brave
