LIVERPOOL, ALEKSANDAR

Liverpool. Aleksandar. Morin-Heights, Quebec, 2014.

Why Liverpool? I asked.

“You know why. Just write it down.”

I do know why: for the same reasons as this guySasha and I have been best friends for thirty years and we discussed football related matters about million times, so I know. He writes for living; about his literary genius you can read all over the internet. Better yet, just pick up one of his books. The latest one, The Making of Zombie Wars, is coming out in May this year and it truly is a roller-coaster ride of sex and violence. He can’t help himself so Sasha often writes about soccer/football too. He’s been quoted at the top of this page, a fine achievement I think.

We both love to play the game, not just talk about it, and were involved in many matches together, be it in Sarajevo, in Montreal or in Chicago, sometimes as teammates and sometimes on the opposite sides. The only argument we ever had was during one of those matches (we were teammates in that one). But then I tore both of my ACLs and retired from the game. Sasha still plays every week year-round, regardless of the weather, in a Chicago park.

    A fan that many teams would like to have.
    I’m a fan of Benfica (Portugal), but I have a huge admiration for Liverpool, mainly for its fans.

    I’m a fan of Arsenal, but I’m way over here in Southern California. I imagine that to be able to see them play at the Emirates would be beyond amazing, not just because of who they are but because of the environment and the supporters. Even then, I can’t imagine what an experience it is to see Liverpool at Anfield. I’m sure I would be tear up listening to the crowd sing You’ll Never Walk Alone.
    I love the blog, by the way. It’s a very cool way to see beyond the sport and humanize the people who follow it and explore its influence.
