Monday Inspiration: Antarctic football training

This week's Monday Inspiration is inspired by this photo of a 1914 expedition to cross the Antartic continent by foot. 85 miles into the expedition, their ship The Endurance was frozen into the ice. For around 2 years they were trapped living on the ship and entertained themselves in the only way men know how; football!

Antarctic Soccer Game from 1914
