Y realmente mi fe, mi relacion con Dios, me… Continue reading ¿Por qué la gringa se interesa en Honduras?

A Honduran Flag & A Sweat-Soaked Jersey

Erin & I talked before the game, and decided we needed a good welcome home for our favorite Sporting Catracho, who had done SKC and Honduras so very proud during the Olympics.

The Totally Equalized Soccer Show

My new favorite soccer podcast is The Total Soccer Show.

Since coming back from my 10-year(ish) hiatus from soccer, I… Continue reading Soccer vs Football

We played under some sporadic lightning and… Continue reading Soccer Field Under an Indecisive Sky
