It’s been fun seeing him pretend to get into the games. He picks a team to cheer for based on color and if they score he assumes they won and the game is over.
When the US (white jerseys team) lost to Ghana (red team) I was quite devastated and asked him to turn off the TV. “It’s OK daddy. I’ll turn the TV back on and the white team will win!” he said. The following day he turned on the TV for us to see Germany (white team) play and when they scored he shouted excitedly “See! The white team did win!”
When I travel I usually try to bring Trey back a musical instrument from the country I visited. On this trip I brought him the infamous vuvuzela – a plastic horn blown by thousands of fans at South African soccer games. Here’s a clip of Trey blowing his vuvuzela during the USA v Algeria game.
