(San Francisco, CA) -- A San Francisco soccer fan is driving to all the way to Brazil to attend the World Cup. "Sports Illustrated" says Ben Kamphuis began his 13-thousand mile trip in January in his 1995 Chevy Truck. The 52-year-old took time off from his job working with disabled adults in a San Francisco city gardening program to see his favorite team, the Netherlands, play Spain on June 13th. Kamphuis took a long route to Brazil to speak at local schools about using sports to stop racism and discrimination.
