Long Beach Boulevard East Broadway

Keep Calm and Carry a Soccer Ball

Anthony Marin

I see a lot of parks and neighborhoods on my train ride. I also see what some people call trash and other people call art. I just call it graffiti.

I take my soccer ball with me when I ride from Long Beach to L.A. I play professional street soccer against people who have played in FIFA and the World Cup. My team’s called Concrete Royalty.

My advice to people taking public transportation is not to stress about when you’re going to get there, because you can’t control how fast the ride is anyway.
