These coaches and staff would each tell you that Jesus is the best thing that has ever happened in their lives and soccer is somewhere else down the line.
Goatee Surfing Grover Beach
Goatee: Mascot of the year!

From home-town hero, to national celebrity, and now... and international phenominon. Goatee has been awarded M.I.G. (Most Interesting Goat) of the Year! Sharks have a week dedicated to her.  Sheep have been known to count her to go asleep. She always wonders why the other side is less green than hers.  Her birh certificate reads..."one in a million".  In the running of the bulls, she walks.  She once saved an entire litter of baby pandas from freezing, with her goattee.  She was once bitten by the most poisonous snake in the world and after 24 hours of excruciating pain........the snake finally died.  Her organ donor card also includes her goattee.

She's been making headlines on msnbc.com, The Weather Channel, and in the UK on The Huffington Post. Check out the living mascots while you can!

    "A surfing goat is the latest internet sensation after the cheekily-named ‘Goatee’ took to waves on Grover beach in California.

    Swimmers thought that surfers were kidding around when they put the silly billy on a board. But the feisty animal took the challenge by the horns and milked the experience for all it was worth.

    Originally Goatee had been brought to get rid of weeds in her owners' garden. Her owner Dayna Mcgregor said: "She did pretty well, she got up on a couple of waves. I say got up - we put her on a couple of waves...."

Flo Kaka: Mascot of the Year (2009-2010)
This person was born for this! No one could or should or would want to do it better than this person. When he sings, birds stop and listen admiringly.  If  Kaka was to have teeth, they would all be wisdom teeth.   He is the main reason the bulls are still running in Spain.

He is a legend of the game. This year at Flo Camp there was a day dedicated just to him.  This William Wallace of a man has played 21 years as a professional soccer player in Scotland and played in over a 1000 professional games in total, 9 Scotland National Team appearances, and if that was not enough, he scored the game winning penalty in 1990 to win the Scottish Cup Final in front of 70,000 fans (click here to see footage)... But what astonishes me is, still to this day, his greatest achievement has been during the coaches vs kids match in our Flo 2011 Freestyle Camp, scoring the game winner (click here to see the moment). The Loch Ness Monstor thinks he is a myth. And when he goes to muesums he is allowed to touch things.  A moment of silence is mandated whenever he leaves a crowded room!

"Flow is the mental state of operation in which a person in an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and success in the process of the activity. Flow is completely focused motivation. It is a single-minded immersion and represents perhaps the ultimate in harnessing the emotions in the service of performing and learning. In flow, the emotions are not just contained and channeled, but positive, energized, and aligned with the task at hand. The hallmark of flow is a feeling of spontaneous joy, even rapture, while performing a task, although flow is also described as a deep focus on nothing but the activity not even oneself or one's emotions." We know this because we looked it up on WIKIPEDIA.
