The Run of Play is a blog about
the wonder and terror of soccer.
We left the window open during a match in October 2007 and a strange wind blew into the room.
Now we walk the forgotten byways of football with a lonely tread, searching for the beautiful, the bewildering, the haunting, and the absurd.
Tom sent along this great video of reaction shots from the New England players as they go down 4-0 to Chicago in the first half. (Apparently Tom is a Chicago fan or something? You learn something new every day.) The game is a few days old, but the haunting disappointment is timeless.
The Tuesday Portrait will be a bit late this week—look for it sometime tomorrow.
