My name is Trick Jarrett and this is my soc­cer blog. I’m a big fan of soc­cer. I never played it pro­fes­sion­al­ly. I’m not a soc­cer jour­nal­ist. I’m just a fan of the game. I watch a lot of it, reg­u­lar­ly watch­ing upwards of 20 hours a week of the beau­ti­ful game thanks to a num­ber of stream­ing ser­vices and a wife who shares my love for the game.

FirstTou.ch is my soc­cer blog, a place for me to talk about match­es, and about what is going on in the game. Maybe one day it will be more.

I run a custom‐built MLS Pick’Em League for my friends. It’s based on a struc­ture my buddy came up with, and is a cus­tom built PHP web app.

Outside of soc­cer, I work for Wizards of the Coast and live in the Seattle area with my wife and our giant silly dog, Elwood.
