Today, I share a soccer story from a varsity game in 2004 where I tried to do some good by keeping the cards in my pocket. Alas, my valor only made the situation worse.
The column title comes from a great song by one of my favorite bands, Coldplay.
Editor's note: I'm sure that Gwyneth, Apple, and Moses would agree.
While Coldplay isn't exactly in the pantheon of greatest bands ever, like, say, Flock of Seagulls, they're still pretty damn good. Note: The name of the high school in today's column has been changed to protect the guilty.
Someone at the office asked why I waited so long to relate the story. The answer is simple: I don't know.
