From home-town hero, to national celebrity, and now... and international phenominon. Goatee has been awarded M.I.G. (Most Interesting Goat) of the Year! Sharks have a week dedicated to her. Sheep have been known to count her to go asleep. She always wonders why the other side is less green than hers. Her birh certificate reads..."one in a million". In the running of the bulls, she walks. She once saved an entire litter of baby pandas from freezing, with her goattee. She was once bitten by the most poisonous snake in the world and after 24 hours of excruciating pain........the snake finally died. Her organ donor card also includes her goattee.
"A surfing goat is the latest internet sensation after the cheekily-named ‘Goatee’ took to waves on Grover beach in California.
Swimmers thought that surfers were kidding around when they put the silly billy on a board. But the feisty animal took the challenge by the horns and milked the experience for all it was worth.
Originally Goatee had been brought to get rid of weeds in her owners' garden. Her owner Dayna Mcgregor said: "She did pretty well, she got up on a couple of waves. I say got up - we put her on a couple of waves...."

Prime Minister of Flo Ministries. He has represented his country twice playing the Brazilian National Futsal team getting pummelled on both occasions…He is known as “Sunny D” or “The Most Interesting Camp Director in the World”…He Lives vicariously through himself...and his goats. His chest hair alone has been known to grow 10x faster then the average man. He started playing soccer in the womb, then when he came out he played a couple years pro before starting Flo Soccer Ministries.
Started off his playing career in the movie, "Braveheart", and is now playing with the Houston Dynamo in the MLS and is currently fighting for a position on the Flo National Team. Has been a great asset to Flo Ministries and has just been offered a 10 year underwear contract with Flo, very similar to David Beckham’s. He won a World Championship with the Columbus crew in 2009 and married Steve’s sister…it’s a long story. He had a full beard at age 9!
He is a legend of the game. This year at Flo Camp there was a day dedicated just to him. This William Wallace of a man has played 21 years as a professional soccer player in Scotland and played in over a 1000 professional games in total, 9 Scotland National Team appearances, and if that was not enough, he scored the game winning penalty in 1990 to win the Scottish Cup Final in front of 70,000 fans (click here to see footage)... But what astonishes me is, still to this day, his greatest achievement has been during the coaches vs kids match in our Flo 2011 Freestyle Camp, scoring the game winner (click here to see the moment). The Loch Ness Monstor thinks he is a myth. And when he goes to muesums he is allowed to touch things. A moment of silence is mandated whenever he leaves a crowded room!
Another member of Flo’s National Team, Crosby speaks French, in 3 different languages, and people have been known to hang on his every word. It has been said that his word is worth a thousand pictures. And, if he were to read the phone book to you, you would be on the edge of your seat. He is one of those soccer players that started in the womb and came out shooting. When he shoots he scores....and it does not matter whose goal he is shooting at.
He is more known as Sparky by his teammates and friends, and has been a member of Flo’s National Team for several years. His subtle skill can humble the proudest of players and let’s just say he has taught old dogs a variety of "new tricks”. He has mastered Flo camps' soccer aerobics for years. He was inducted into Flo’s Hall of Fame... during halftime of his first game. Other random interesting facts about Sparky is that he drove to Hawaii twice and won the Tour de France, on a stationary bike.
Deandre made it to the top 10 with his song, "Flo Fosho" and the latest track “What a trip” rested at number 1 for a solid 2 minutes. His physique will motivate you to get in the gym and when asked what he would like to share with you all he said “The lord gave me two ears and one mouth so shut up and listen and you will become a genius, talk too much and you end up rapping for Flo Ministries”. The interesting thing about D is that he is able to get online where ever he is at....with no internet connection. As a fireman he has never had to shave his beard! And D-Da Dad’s firstborn son was born with a full beard!
Habibi is one of a kind. His sense of humor has been known to stir laughter in countries he has never been. He is the life of parties he’s never attended. He speaks Arabic, in his own language and he has been known to cure leprosy just by walking into the room. Habibi is the creator, if you will, of all of our T-shirts designs and website. He is a master of his trade and technology has often asked him, “How do I do this?" He is Palestinian, occasionally, and he bowl’s......overhand. The other week he led a horse to water, and made it drink.
What I find most interesting about this man is that everytime we go for a swim, dolphins appear! He has won thousands of awards, but he treasures the award of "Flo Coach and Mascot of the Year in 2009" the most! He told me that he once had an awkward moment just to see how it felt and recentl,y His mom got a tatoo of him... it says..... “Son”. If he were to turn into a superhero, he would look exactly the same.
This man bleeds soccer and has been compared to Davy Crockett or modern day Chuck Liddell. He has a problem with listening to referees but other then that he has been very helpful to flo Ministries. Currently a member of Flo’s National team but might be getting cut from the squad because we have not seen him at camp the last couple years.
Josh is not only our Videographer/ Film Producer Extraordinaire; He was also ranked top videographer of Flo Soccer Ministry for 4 years straight. He has been flawless since he has stepped on the field for flo. His footage has been viewed around the globe and in your living room and people have been known not to blink an eye when watching Josh’s films. His videos of Flo have over 15 hits...each.
Known for his hops also nicknamed Sir Hop-A-Lot. Matt has been a member of Flo’s National Team for 4 years and has served in many capacities during camps. He has helped Flo since it’s inception. Matt has absolutely no soccer experience but has been honored by all his peers with the award of "Male Athlete of the Year" for Flo camp for the last 7 years. We started doing flo camps in 2009...do the math....quite impressive..He was born to jump and when he jumps for joy he get’s it every time.
Mike has been playing since his youth starting off his career for local team Condors Soccer Club and finishing his career with us at Flo. He has been on FLO’s National Team for several years and not only is Mike a great player but was voted the "Most Valuable Coach and Grounds-keeper" for 2011’s freestyle camp. Speaking of groundskeeping...if a tree fell in the woods while he was around, it would be highly recommended for it NOT to make a sound. He once made a weeping willow laugh. If at first Mike didn't succeed, then he has yet to try it or it is impossible.
Fly’n-V rises to any competition and he is the Chaplain for Flo ministries as well as a phenomenal coach. He was offered an amazing coaching contract for flo and could not refuse it. Most valuable coach for the 2010 Flo Camp for 3 years. Ryan’s Parents were acutally named after him! And as a child, when asked by a teacher, “Ryan what would you like to be when you grow up?" He answered, “Myself”.... Since we have had flo camp he has always seemed to be on time....yet somehow he arrives fashionably late.
The most interesting player that ever played Major League Soccer. It has been said that his reputation is expanding faster then the the universe!!! When he is not scoring for his pro team, he is sitting the bench for Flo’s National Team. His hobies include crocheting, motor biking down to Baja, Mexico, or visiting his friends in Zambia who build bikes and give them to the poor. He is a lover on the field and not a fighter, but he’s also a fighter, so don’t get any idea’s. He’s living the dream loving Jesus and playing Pro Soccer. Still working out why his sister married Adam Moffat…..
