Been playing the beautiful game of football, or soccer here in the states, since I could walk. I truly can not imagine my life without the beautiful game, and has been one of the main driving forces in my life for a long time now. I currently play on the Saint Martin's University men's soccer team, and am truly blessed to be able to apply my skill at the college level. Continuing my football career after college at the professional level is still a decision I have yet to make, but regardless, my love of football will never fade.
One of the events that spurred me to follow professional football was, in my opinion, the greatest match in sporting history taken place in Istanbul on the 25th of May. To be quite honest, this was one of the first matches I had ever seen on television. I could not watch it live, so I recorded it on my DVR. It took me a while to finally watch it, and was secretly rooting Liverpool on, as they were the underdogs. When the score was 3-0 at half, from my experience playing the game, I thought it was over. However, six minutes of glory was all it took to complete the greatest comeback I had ever seen. From that point, I fell in love with Liverpool, and continue to be an avid supporter to this day.
