My eldest son Jesus Mateo is a footballer and a mighty good one at that! I have videos of him running rings around teams here in Colombia. Oh and ‘soccer’ is spelt ‘futbol’. Since COVID struck nearly 2 years ago Jesus hasn’t had the opportunity to take advantage of his talent because of the authoritarian regime which is just starting to get into full swing.
Case in point: This morning Jesus and his 6 year old sister Katherine Rose (seen below) just got vaccinated so they can enter a cinema, eat in a restaurant, even go to school. The tragedy is.. they haven’t even studied presential in a school for 2 years because of the regime.
The health corp just mandated that they (my kids) require a flu jab in 2 weeks. Ellas van a pagar.
“Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. ‘ ” – Matthew 19:14
So what does that have to do with today’s track Dreaming by Smallpools? It is from the virtual ‘futbol’ game FIFA 19 which my son and I heard as we started the program. There exists a whole host of songs in rotation on the FIFA game, but this one called Dreaming didn’t make me want to slit my wrists. I really like the verses. It makes my project list because…ummm… well it’s futbol and that’s that. As I write this, Colombia will play Brazil today in the World Cup qualifiers. Brazil sit comfortably 1st and Colombia in 4th position on the table.
“Dreaming” was the Smallpools‘ biggest hit single; it charted at number 23 on Billboard‘s Alternative Songs chart, and was later certified gold. I would suggest you listen to the audio than watch the video below if you want to keep your food inside. It shows intense activities like—playing beer pong, socializing—before coming up for air in the backyard pool. It’s a shocker. The group invited all of their personal friends to act in the video. So that’s cool. I’m hip..down with it….
