B's 10 month old photo beefed up with a new sock stadium featuring my favorite soccer player and someone I look to as an embodiment of the American ideal (which I think provides antidote to the present politick): Darlington Nagbe...my idea of a true #10. (Link in bio if you don't mind spending 10 minutes on YouTube listening to his story.) I've been following this kid since the MLS 2011 draft and I'm pumped B will be growing up in his soccer shadow...
Context: Sooo bummed because I (started making this) over a year ago with World Cup on my mind. Buuuut it never happened. At the time, the US was playing in the Gold Cup....(We won wearing this jersey)...but man, missing the global party going down now is brutal. Darlington is still relatively young (mid/late 20s) so theres still hope he'll wear red white and blue in 4 years...
Everything made out of socks, towels, blankets, chonies, PJ's, onesies, sheets, shirts, baby wipes and a peepee-teepee (soccer ball)
