I love football. I love the estetics of football. I love the athleticism of football. I love the movement of the players, the antics of the coaches. I love the dynamism of the fans. I love their passion for their badge and their color of their team and their country. I love the noise and the buzz and the electricity in the stadiums. I love the songs. I love the way the ball moves and then it flows and the way a teams fortunes rise and fall through a game and through a season. But I love the football that it brings people together across religious divides, geographic divides, political divides. I love the fact that for ninety minutes in a rectangular piece of grass, people can forget hopefully, whatever might be going on in their life, and rejoice in this communal celebration of humanity.The biggest diverse, invasive or pervasive culture that human kinds knows is football. And I love the fact that at the altar of football human kind can come worship and celebrate.
