We have a story here, and it’s about football.
In a time when most fans don’t have access to a TV, the game is still the most important, most meaningful, most loved sport on the planet.
There are millions of people around the world who miss it every year, but when they do, the memories of the games they loved and the memories they’ll never forget are too often lost.
So it was with a heavy heart that we at ESPN Crikey were honored to share the life and memories of some of the greatest athletes to have played the game.
We spoke to a number of them.
We spoke to the ones who went out and made it big.
We sat down with a handful of them for an hour and a half and interviewed them about their lives and the way they felt about the game, and they gave us some insight into the kind of people they are and how much they loved it.
