This set is at the Salesopolis Futsal Center - June 19th. We played futsal with Brazilain boys (junior high and high school). The picture with our four girls celebrating on the field was after scoring on the boys. There was big group of younger boys watching that would cheer like mad whenever one our girls scored or stuck a Brazilian guy. Great atmosphere. One of the Brazilian kids is showing a St Paul Blackhawks t-shirt. He got it as a gift - funny. The pict with the Brazilian lady is when we donated shoes, balls, equipment and jerseys to their program.
