Pittsburgh Sports Report – For the Fun of It

By Scott Robertson

Eleven-year old Tony Picardi of Scott Twp. plays soccer in the Chartiers Valley Athletic Association. He does it for fun. But when he really wants to have a good time, he plays soccer, baseball and basketball with his neighborhood friends.

“I like the pick-up games,” he said. “We play just for fun. When we play (organized) soccer, you have to go all the way out there and listen to what the coaches tell you. The coaches can be scary sometimes.”
