Toddler Has Serious Soccer Skills, Gets a Professional Contract [Video]

Cue Mr. Show references: After this video of a one-and-a-half-year-old named Baerke van der Meij expertly kicking balls into a toybox went viral on YouTube last week, Dutch football club Venlose Voetbal Vereniging (VVV) offered him a “symbolic” professional contract. (As a younger lad — though not that much younger — his grandfather had played in the VVV as well.) The VVV made the following statement on the subject: “The toddler’s favourite position has not yet been determined. However, we can speak of a right-footed player with a very good kicking technique, perseverance and, importantly: football genes via his grandfather.”
