Pop Warner Brown Bombers in Civic Center

Last week a contingent of kids showed up in Civic Center for a Pop Warner team practice that was very entertaining to watch.

The usually homeless-filled lawns of Civic Center Plaza have been striped for kiddie soccer fields lately to give a photo-op to Phil Ginsburg and the SF Rec & Park Department during the World Cup broadcasts, but the dirty little secret of the department is that they don't even bother creating recreational leagues, so they have to import them, even if it is for the wrong sport.

Last week it was the Brown Bombers from the Bayview neighborhood that had been invited to practice in public...

...and their adult coaches were great...

...insisting on excellence while not browbeating anyone.
