Brian Thompson is a retired journalist who one day receives a very tempting proposition from his old friend Jim Achkrman. Jim wants Brian to do a story on the history of the World Cup Soccer Championships. Brian, however, is currently living a comfortable life in retirement surrounded by a group of energetic young kids who have a passion for soccer. Enjoying his retirement years, Brian feels that the task of writing such a story may be too demanding upon him. Besides, all the reference materials are scattered about and it would be a difficult task to organize all of these materials.
The kids however have a different plan. They very much would like Brian to write such a story and they take on the task of organizing these materials so as to convince Brian to take this project on.
Much to the astonishment of Brian, he finds all of his reference materials neatly organized in one place. Everything is in order for Brian to begin. There is even a message on his computer screen stating Good Morning, Grandpa, which further hints at Brian coming out of retirement to work on this story.
After all of this coaxing, Brian decides to venture back into his career as a sports journalist one more time.
As Brian is the only sports journalist who has witnessed all of the World Cup Soccer Matches from the very beginning, no one would be better suited than Brian to do this job.
And this is how our story begins......
