United, We Stood

It’s easy to reflect now, but what started that night in March became overwhelming.  We fell in love with the team on the pitch, with amazing, young,  previously unknown (at least to us) players like Miguel Almiron, Josef Martinez and Yamil Assad, and older veterans I’d heard of but didn’t “know”.  The atmosphere at Bobby Dodd started off at an…

Review

As we near the end of 2017, I near the end of my first year of blogging.

Ten separate flights…

Trust

It’s an overused word. And it’s apparently an overused concept. I am struggling mightily with the idea of trust.

Perhaps driven by watching how dogged journalism was the route to the truth during Watergate…
