hey david Chang. I know you don't really fuck with soccer all that much but Asians do a have a premier talent in pro sports right now. Son Heung-Min from Tottenham Hotspur. he's a top 10 player in the world right now but doesn't get enough love. imo it's because he's Asian. check him out and throw some love at him because the boy deserves it!
