When I go home I'm going to play a game. The game is going to be soccer. It's going to be really fast soccer. You have to kick it really, really high up. Then we have to stand up and bump it with your forehead and the other person has to kick it. We kick it again and again. Then we punch it with your hand. Then kick it with your knee. Then me and Adam, he's on my team, Adam has to hit it with his helmet ear and then we start playing football catch. If you pass it to Adam you win. And then in football ... me and Adam play soccer, baseball and football.
