A Conversation I Had with Steve

(Because he didn’t know who Cristiano Ronaldo or Kaka were.)

Me: Yeah, but you can’t even name a soccer player.

Steve: Pele. And Ronaldo.

Me: Name a soccer player who isn’t retired that isn’t Landon Donovan.

Steve: Ooh, Landon Donovan would have been a good one.

Steve: That kid, Pepe, or whatever.

Me: Pepe?

Steve: Or Jose.

Me: Jose?

Steve: These are totally soccer players.

Me: No.

Steve: Wait, wait, I got it. Spice Girl’s husband.
