(a lil’ snap from our night at the Sounders game…)
fútbol. football. soccer. Call it whatever you want. What I love about this beautiful game is that it’s not just some 100 year old American past time. Don’t get me wrong… chowin’ down on a chili dog at a baseball game is just down right goodness. But the game of soccer is one that brings together an entire planet unlike anything I’ve ever seen.
Whether you are at your first MLS game, a high school stadium, a little tikes game with 5 year olds running mad, at a EUFA cup match, or the slums of Guatemala–there is a beautiful unity around the game in which anyone can play. No matter who you are, what you look like, or how much money you have.
And that is beautiful.
I suck at soccer. Like so awful my 7 year old niece can show me up. I run from one end of the field to the other and I’m suckin’ wind like a brand new Dyson.
But I will always love this game.
