The short version:
I’m a middle-aged American male who, for almost half his life, had not the slightest clue about the game we call “soccer.” A year as an exchange student in Germany nearly 20 years ago and the increasing ease of access to information via the interenet combined to bring me back to watching Bundesliga competition.
Somehow, I’ve become a fan of 1. FC Köln. Here, I will just write about whatever related topics come to mind. This is nothing more than that!
Beyond that, I maintain a daydream fantasy where I somehow move my family to the Köln area, where we will regularly sport the red and white gear and take in some games. Until then, it’s me in my home office nine time zones away watching with my coffee WAY too early in the morning!
