Harrison's goalkeeping debut

Post 1

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). http://twitter.com/i/moments/1030333109282136065

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

That is wonderful GB. The Washington Post is one of our few papers of record and for a relative to make it there is really BIG STUFF. I wish Harrison and his dad the best and will hope their team does well.

smiley - applause for all involved.
