wednesday wisdom: speaking of the women’s world cup (and copa america)…

Years have gone by and I’ve finally learned to accept myself for who I am: a beggar for good football. I go about the world, hand outstretched, and in the stadiums I plead: “A pretty move, for the love of God.”

And when good football happens, I give thanks for the miracle and I don’t give a damn which team or country performs it.
