Parson Higgins -

Congrats to South Africa! Along with track and filed, the sport of "football" is truly an international event. As a soccer Dad I have enjoyed watching and mentoring my 8 year old son in the techniques of competitive soccer. I have already taught him about the global importance of Pele` and now with the emergence of 14 year old MLS phenom Freddy Adu, the sky's the limit for this sport. QED

Greetings and best wishes Rev. Higgins As football runs in our blood here in Bermuda we are exited for you and the people of South Africa. We should one day organize a competition with teams from our friends in the Caribbean, Canada, U.S., and the U.K. and have some fun of our own.

God Bless You and All of our Brothers and Sisters
