The Walrus: The Game Not Played

The Walrus is a magazine that “launched in September 2003 with a straightforward mandate: to be a national general interest magazine about Canada and its place in the world. We are committed to presenting the best work by the best writers and artists from Canada and elsewhere, on a wide range of topics for curious readers” (taken from The Walrus:

While talking with a friend about the state of women’s soccer in Canada, she told me about an article in the June 2013 issue of The Walrus that profiles Christine Sinclair and the local/international context of which her soccer career exists in.

The article is an interesting read, as is the podcast between The Walrus’ Chris Berube and the writer of “The Game Not Played” Richard Poplak, who speak further about Poplak’s approach to the article and interviewing Christine Sinclair. Links to both can be found below.
