The most passionate fan of Zinedine Zidane; life revolves around football, movies, The Catcher in the Rye, Led Zeppelin, and a degree in Economics and Finance at The University of Hong Kong. Perpetually stuck in a moral quandary created by my belief in The Dude’s abiding words: “Yeah, well, you know, that’s just like your opinion, man,” the issue being that I enjoy writing 4,000-word essays on football littered with grossly unchecked injections of opinionated judgments.
