“I’ve had a never-ending obsession with fútbol [soccer]: I just thought it was the most beautiful thing in the world. It became more than a sport; it was a dance. A form of expression. It was precious. My earliest memories of playing fútbol are playing in Spanish leagues in public school gyms all over Brooklyn. We call it ‘Papi League,’ and it easily is one of the most important parts of my life. It helped shape who I am, and will forever be a sacred experience. Ronaldinho was the best player to ever play; I looked up to him like a father figure. Fútbol is my drug; I play every day. It makes me feel like I’m a kid again. It’s my healthy addiction.”
