In entirely non-football-related news: please, please, please read the NYT article "Outcasts United," written by friend of the blog Warren St. John about the Fugees, an all-refugee youth soccer league in our backyard of Clarkston, Georgia.
The article is just brilliant, brilliant, brilliant, along with the photographs multimedia stuff accompanying it. Luma is a local hero in our neighborhood, and seeing her get some substantial support and recognition for her work warms the cockles of our otherwise dusty, cold heart. If you'd like to support the Fugees, visit their website and click the soccer ball to donate.
Bring tissues. It's that kind of party.
Lions on the prowl: Fugees take the field.
