Truth be told, I’m a terrible athlete. Remember that one kid on your school soccer team who was just so excited to have a chance to kick the ball? Remember the sheer surprise/joy everyone felt when, instead of trying and missing the ball like he normally did, his boot actually connected and that ball went flying? That was me. Once, I scored a goal and was one step away from stopping the entire game and starting a full-on dance break; luckily for everyone my dear sweet coach shouted ‘That’s it! Now get back in the game!’ quickly enough for me to come back down to earth. Mostly.I stuck it out for a few years and managed to become a decent defender, but neither my heart nor my feet were…
