To the resume of Kyle Martino ’99 — professional player, television broadcaster — add one more: blogger.
Go to KyleMartino.com, and you’ll find sharp analysis of the US soccer world. He’s already discussed topics like the forced retirement of good players (criticizing his former team, the Columbus Crew, in the process); MLS Cup (he correctly predicted Colorado to win), and injuries.
In his 1st post, Kyle described his new venture:
My site is a celebration of the day I became a fan again. Being a player can separate you from the fans, build a wall between you. I want Kylemartino.com to be the site that brings that wall down.
I want to share the good, the bad and the ugly of this beautiful game with all of the fans. I want this site to be the place where soccer fans of all types congregate to share their thoughts and opinions, especially those that are different from mine.
Can’t wait to enjoy this game with all of you.
Kyle writes with vision, cleverness and tenacity — the same way he played the game.
