With a hearty hat-tip to du Nord, I read a bit about Indra Sahdan’s trial with Real Salt Lake. A hint of the exotic draws me to the player – though, of course, I hope he’s still good – but the last line in the latest write-up really caught my eye:
“Finally, Indra reversed his earlier decision to leave.”
“He said: ‘At 28, this is my last chance of realising a dream to play abroad.'”
I never thought of Major League Soccer (MLS) as a destination for players. But I suppose that depends on where you start.
And I give a mental high-five to anyone who can guess where I lifted the line “marinate on that for a minute.” I’m thinking one source, one song to be precise. And the context is totally different…
