With the World Cup being held in Brazil, it only seems right that Adidas be inspired by the lively color and life of the Carnival. The Adidas Copa Mundial has been one of the best selling soccer cleats ever made, with more than 10 million pairs sold since it's debut in 1979. It has pretty much stayed the same, a classic loved by professionals and amateurs alike.
WAKA SoCal is hosting a kick-ass Charity Kickball tournament on Dec. 7th being held at the Stub Hub center fields (home of the LA Galaxy MLS team) in Carson, CA. It's called the DEOC because that's COED backwards.

Sounds like a good time!
Each team gets to represent a charity. The winning teams earn more money for their particular charity, but all charities represented win that day, by money earned and exposure gained. The WAKA SoCal folks are doing everything in their power
As of this writing we're 2 days and 20 hours away from the 16th Annual Founders Cup held in Las Vegas, NV. This is WAKA Kickball's biggest and most prestigious event of the year. If you haven't been to one of these events, I highly recommend you join a WAKA league and get your team primed to go next year. It's a once in a lifetime thing.

It is exactly as it sounds. Awesome. Some of my friends from Los Angeles are going to such an event in Denver in late July. I'm sure it's good clean fun - but knowing my friends, it will involve a lot of liquor and a massive hangover the following day.
