Opportunity

Sun, 07 Aug 2016 09:18:10 +0000

This was a photo that I had taken on a cold Columbus night in December. December 6th to be exact. It was my sister’s birthday that day too. While I love her to death, it was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. It was the chance to cover the Timbers when they played in the … Continue reading Opportunity



Refugees

Fri, 20 Nov 2015 08:23:25 +0000

I’m a second generation Vietnamese-American. My parents came to the U.S. in the late 1970s after they had to flee the North Vietnamese when they came into Saigon. Both of them eventually were sponsored by two great families in a small Pennsylvanian town called Oil City, where they were willing to open their homes to individuals … Continue reading Refugees



Why You Should Be Rooting for Olympique Lyonnais Right Now

Sat, 07 Nov 2015 00:34:34 +0000

Soccer has been so much about acquiring and developing the perfect squad: A invincible defense and a dynamic and deadly offense. But in our current age of soccer, the best way to do that? Money. You have a weakness somewhere on the pitch? You buy a player that can fill that gap. However, not every club … Continue reading Why You Should Be Rooting for Olympique Lyonnais Right Now



Bye 2014… Hello 2015

Wed, 31 Dec 2014 23:18:06 +0000

Ten years ago, I was left with the most morbid memory of my induction into becoming an adult: I sat with my father and one of the employees of the funeral home that we were at in Chicago. The employee was working me through paperwork for my mother's funeral service. I was still left in shock, trying to recollect the last days that I talked to her at the hospital as she was fighting her last battle with lung cancer. As I signed line after line, those thoughts soon became, "What does life have in store for me now?"



Random Thoughts – Post-World Cup Final and Clubs

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 18:43:25 +0000

… The night before the quarterfinals, I told my friend, “Whoever came out of the bracket between Brazil, Colombia, France, and Germany victorious would win the World Cup.” My belief there was that they were the four most convincing teams thus far in the tournament. They were assertive in their attack and calm and collected … Continue reading Random Thoughts – Post-World Cup Final and Clubs



Random Thoughts – Post-World Cup Round of 16

Some thoughts on the Round of 16 matches in the World Cup.



Random Thoughts – Post-World Cup Group Stage

Fri, 27 Jun 2014 20:38:26 +0000

Just some thoughts on the 2014 World Cup after the group stage. There's definitely a lot of things to talk about.



Managing Coed Soccer

Tue, 01 Apr 2014 11:55:47 +0000

Coed soccer has been a popular sport in the greater Seattle area. I jumped onto the scene seven years ago as a manager of a team consisting of our IMA intramural soccer team at the UW.  It’s undergone a lot of changes, with people coming and going. At one point, it had to go under … Continue reading Managing Coed Soccer



Idols, Identity, and Fears

Wed, 04 Sep 2013 10:15:57 +0000

It was the fifth in six years. Another concussion. Most professional athletes don’t get anywhere close to that number in such a short time span. But somehow, I pulled it off. The night after I got the concussion, I went out with some friends to give him the PAX badges I ordered for them. I … Continue reading Idols, Identity, and Fears



A Battle for the Best “Chapelle’s Show” Sketch

Wed, 23 Jan 2013 00:22:10 +0000

I don’t really know how else to describe Dave Chapelle except for the fact that he’s pretty hilarious, even though some of his stuff is… well, I think watching a clip or two can really tell you everything. Weed, liberal use of the n-word, political and racial stereotypes all over the place. It’s still pretty … Continue reading A Battle for the Best “Chapelle’s Show” Sketch
