Today, you can find a soccer ball in almost every American home or garage. But Keith Binns, dubbed “the father of Madison soccer,” remembers a time when it was impossible to buy a soccer ball anywhere in Madison, Wisconsin. “Alive and Kicking” traces the evolution of soccer in the Midwest, from its humble roots in the mid-fifties to its present overwhelming success.
A charming Brit with a delightful sense of humor and knack for spinning a yarn, “Dusty” Binns tells tales of resistance and politics, of travel and camaraderie, of friendship and passion, that happened during his 60+ years of playing soccer. Join Binns on his adventures with soccer, “the game for a lifetime.”
