For those who’ve already heard this story, my apologies:
I played every sport as a kid but actually hated soccer. I finished college in Ghana (I’d been studying traditional Ghanaian music for years and was really lucky to spend the summer of 1998 in Accra). This was during the ’98 Men’s World Cup and gathering with my beloved host family each evening to watch games completely transformed my opinion of the sport. That summer, I became a lifelong soccer fan and an avid supporter of Ghana’s national teams. Fast forward twenty years, and I get to make this comic about @amapele10, captain of the Ghanaian women’s team and brilliant addition to my favorite club, Reign FC.
Now, if you’re in town, come out and support this team on Sunday!!
