“Saturday will be my last Kick This show,” host SoccerSam Fantauzzo said in an email. “I’ve been doing this since 1995, and I’ve loved every minute of hosting the show.
“I’ve had some of the greatest soccer guests, family, friends and co-hosts be part of my weekly party.
“This amazing show helped me reconnect with my life after my 2009 injury. I’m healed, and ready for the next soccer adventure.
