Taken by itself, this is a not so special video of some 4 year olds attempting to play soccer. But, if you know Thing 3, especially if you knew him when he was 4 years old, and once you hear the back story of what he was trying to do in this game, it takes on a whole new meaning.
Thing 3 was mad about something. And there was always something when he was 4 years old. Someone probably said or did something the wrong way. So Thing 3 decided he would get even by sabotaging the game and kicking the ball off the field so they couldn’t play. He was so determined and managed to kick the ball off the field a few times.
The coaches and other kids had no idea why he kept intentionally kicking the ball off the field. Thing 1 was there and thought it was hilarious, and he still jokes about it. I wanted to immortalize it here forever so one day Thing 3’s kids could see how their dad was when he was 4.
