The beautiful game first revealed itself to Franklin Sirmans in the lightning-bolt shots of Giorgio Chinaglia. In the gazelle-like strides of Franz Beckenbauer. And in the audacious inventiveness of the Brazilian forward Pelé. It was the late 1970s, and Sirmans was a New York City high school soccer player who supported the Cosmos, the Gotham squad that was a melting pot of global talent. Its fan base, likewise, was a veritable United Nations of fútbol obsessives. Even during the few years he lived in Albany, Sirmans says, his love of soccer and the Cosmos bound him to a broader, more cosmopolitan concept of humanity.
