My Ride with Sven

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 7:00 AM: I’m riding on the Marc to D.C
in front of Sven-Göran Eriksson: the ex-
England-and-now-Mexico football coach sits

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 drowsing behind me (we’re facing
backwards toward Baltimore), and it
isn’t Sven but just a man who looks

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 like him (he’s got Sven-Göran’s silver hair
and trademark silver-rimmed spectacles).
He detrains at New Carrollton before

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 the Marc rolls down to Union Station,
glides down the escalator to his work
at the Social Security Administration.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 And I regret once again we can’t enjoy
comparing notes on the merits
of the England and Mexico teams.
