Once upon a time, I was pretty active in the American soccer scene writing about lower-league soccer. You can still read some of my stories on Dirty South Soccer, The Brotherly Game, and Penn97, while others are lost to time.
Writing was a fun outlet when I was less-than-content with my work as a teacher, and it helped me connect with soccer at a more local level. After changing careers and starting a family, the appeal of writing waned.
And while I’m not interested in coming out of retirement as a beat writer, I do have the occasional urge to write about a particular topic. Rather than spin up a separate site (like I tried with Badges FC), I thought I’d add a little section to my own site specifically for soccer.
Will I write regularly? No. Will it be quality content? Probably not. But will it be worth reading? Maybe! We’ll see.
Until next time, play on!
