Games We Play
holy crap, this is cool! i wish i had the time to read it.
my pop used to take me to see the NY Arrows when i was a kid. i loved them! i had NO idea Shep was Jewish or a New Yorker or played on the Cosmos and was well known in the soccer world. I loved watching him and Steve Zungul play indoor soccer. Man, that was exciting! Reminds me of all the sports I played with the Inwood Buccaneers league (Inwood on Long Island, not by the Bronx...)
thanks for posting/linking this Alex. you ROCK!!!
1) Yeah, thelarmis! I went to dozens of Arrows games, and three Cosmos games. Didn't know Shep knew from schlep either.
