When I was a kid it was and still is Diego Maradonna.
I was going to be him.
Score goals like him.
He graced the inside of my locker, my trapper keeper, my wallet.
Most of my friends had Magic Johnson or Michael Jordan.
Silly Americans.
This was a pic I took of a kid in Rwanda last week who had taken a magazine and cut out all his favorite soccer players and made his OWN soccer cards.
It blew me away in the moment.
So who was it for you?
Who’s blood did you bleed on the fields of battle?
Who was your childhood sports hero?
