Celebrity Parents Who Love The Game Of Soccer (Photos)

Is it just me, or is Mike Myers looking really uncomfortable next to Gerard Butler here?

Soccer, football, footie, or whatever you like to call it, there’s no denying that the game brings the world together more than any other sport on the planet. Our kids play it, we sometimes play it, and heck we even watch cute celebrity dads (like David Beckham play it). Just because.

Across the pond, our European friends are currently going soccer crazy with the Euro2012 tournament (and while it’s no World Cup, the stars will come out for the games in big numbers, too).

We’ve compiled a little gallery of some of our favorite parents either participating in the game or cheering on their children from the sidelines. Check out our photos and tell us, are you a soccer parent? Is there a team you are cheering on with your kids this year?
