Supermarket worker-turned-soccer player leads team to historic win1/23/2013
Three years ago, James Hanson was stacking shelves at his local supermarket. Now the 25-year-old goal-scorer has led his fourth-tier team of giant killers into the finals of the Capital One Cup, beating three Premier League clubs along the way. (There's no direct American equivalent for what he and Bradford City have done, but it would be sort of like a Single-A baseball team playing its way into the World Series.) Hanson's story itself seems like it was paraphrased from the pages of Kurt Warner's autobiography, the grocery bagger-turned-quarterback who left the Hy-Vee and became a Super Bowl MVP. "I can't believe it," Hanson said after Tuesday night’s match. "It really hasn't sunk in yet." [Source]
