Welcome back, faithful readers of AP! It's been a long time since I've done one of these. Today's interview with Oakland Roots SC is actually the first since this May, and the first since the baby was born.
There are going to be some changes at AP moving forward. I am going to continue doing interviews, but they will be fewer and farther between, as I'll be focusing on trying to make sure interviews are higher quality, to make it worth the wait, while also doing more op-eds, which seem to draw a lot of interest.
Now, back to today's interview. I've actually worked with Benno on doing an interview to discuss his project in Oakland once before, and we didn't get it all worked out. This time we did. You'll also hear from Mike Geddes of Street Soccer USA and Edreece Arghandiwal, two of the other guys behind Roots SC. Oakland Roots SC also have an affiliate playing in the US Open Cup this year, Oakland Leopards, and they're first game is against Oakland Stompers on Saturday, September 22, 7:00pm PST at Castlemont High School in Oakland. Details of a live stream should be forth coming. And now, without further ado, I give you the Roots.
