What I'm about to say is totally a cliche, but I don't care I'll say it anyway. Football or soccer, whatever you call it, is a religion to me.
Every weekend, much like at a church I wake up way too early and force myself to go sit in a seat for two hours and I worship and praise. I shout and sing for my favorite team and players and I rebuke and chastise the demons of the opposing teams. Hallelujah, Footy. Hyperbole aside, writing for The18 allows me to think about, talk about and write about what I love the most, my passion, football. At the18.com we are encouraged to be creative and write about what interests us, definitely a great environment to be a part of.
