This is my first ever, so please stick with me while I find my groove here. Soccer, henceforth called football whenever I post, is by far my favorite sport. It brings together so many different types of people. All races, orientations, gender identities, and others are welcome. When I was in high school, football was not a widely popular sport to watch on tv and I thought myself kind of a loner because nobody I knew talked about it.
My first New England Revolution game was 5 years ago and I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere at the stadium. I joined the midnight riders when I got home that evening and rambled non-stop about how much fun I had. Fast forward 5 years and I am now a 4th year season ticket holder and the riders are my family. This is one of the first places I’ve ever felt accepted for who I am and not expected to act a certain way to fit in. How could you not fall in love with a sport and people that give you what you had been searching for your entire life?
