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.
That wasn’t a soccer game. That was the wrath of God. Iker Casillas is Job. There really isn’t that much more to say.
