APSA Football (Soccer) Game

Jeffrey Staton and I are organizing another soccer game at the Annual Political Science meetings in Chicago Saturday August 31. It will start at 8:30AM in Grant Park, probably Butler field or near the Lincoln monument. We’ll do an early start to secure a field and to allow people with late morning panels to kick the ball around at least for a bit. You are welcome to join later too. A group will leave from the Palmer House at 8:15 sharp or you can come find us in the park. We’ll be the old geezers with the deft skills. If you would like to be added to the e-mail list send me a note and I will add you to the Evite. Please put APSA Soccer in the subject of your e-mail.

What day?

I’d love to be going to this, if I was a political scientist/and or in America. I used to be a lovely little player, well known for wrapping a game up with a last minute bicycle kick. You could slot me in just behind the front two, if you liked, or I could sit back in a more defensive position, controlling the game through tireless effort and pin point passing
Anywaay, that’s enough boasting for now

The APSA ultimate game will be on the same day (Saturday) at 10am in Grant Park, in a softball outfield to be named later (probably that day as we wander around as Chicago parks folks do not answer email all that well).

There are no soccer fields at Grant Park.

An update for ultimate: the field for 10am Saturday is at Michigan & 11th, a couple of blocks south of the Chicago Hilton
