Rich Zahradnik starting playing football in Poughkeepsie, New York, when he was ten. He watched the NY Cosmos before and after they signed Pelé, including the great one's last game. He supports Nottingham Forest, USA and the NY Red Bulls, pretty much in that order. We don't have time for an explanation for how he became a Forest fan. Rich went from football fan to writer in 1993 through the graciousness of WSC's editors. He is a founder of Greenwich Arsenal FC in Connecticut and plays on one of the club's two over-40s teams.
