Kick-off

Posted by steigs on November 30, 2007

As Eduardo Galeano put it, in Soccer in Sun and Shadow:

“Years have gone by and I’ve finally learned to accept myself for who I am: A beggar for good soccer. I go around the world, hand out-stretched, and in the stadiums I plead: ‘A pretty move, for the love of God.'”

Like Galeano, I’m a beggar for good soccer and I’ve been lucky enough to do a bit of traveling in search of a pretty move.  I’ve got some stories to tell, of pilgrimages to fields near and far, as well as some observation’s from my seat (and my couch).
