Over the last decade I’ve developed a problem, and the first step to recovery is to admit you have a problem. Of course that is as far as I intend to go. I have a soccer problem. Rather than look for some form of rehab I’ve gone the other way and turned it into something that I expect to spend the next two years thinking about even more than I have until now. I’ve decided to take soccer and cross it with my other great fascination in life: geography. What comes out will be my Master’s thesis, but that is a long way down the road. In the meantime I plan to use this as a way to keep my thoughts about everything soccer and academic together.
