How to do the Rainbow

In Soccer Videos on August 25, 2007 at 10:00 am

My friend Elijah taught me how to do the Rainbow. It’s not all that practical in a game – but it’s very fun to do. Take a look at this video (about a dozen times) and then give it a try. It took me about 300 times before I ever did it like you see on the video. Even after you do it once, it will still take lots of practice to do it right – most of the time. I’m not at that point – but I’m on my way!

The U.S. Men’s National Team will play No. 1 ranked Brazil in Chicago on Sunday, September 9. Kickoff at Soldier Field is set for 3 p.m. (Nashville time), and the match will be live on ESPN2 and Univision.

Whatever you do, don’t miss this game. OK, stop what you’re doing right now and write a note to yourself. Now, stick it on the refrigerator.


If you have a spare $2,200.oo in your piggy bank, you can buy these two (rare) “On Field” tickets on ebay.
