This is a Throw Back article , from World cup days
soccer is not really one of my favourite sports I would pick basketball hunks any day…
But recently I have had the chance to watch the worlds most beautiful game right in the thick of action were I could see the tears, feel the joy, breathe the frustrations of the game from the Big Flat Screen TV in a Sports club. Granted its not as glorious as being in the stadium per say but trust me the emotions are still the same as the One in Brazil. The crowd I was with was the laidback type people, u know the ones that are only interested in the games because 1…its the world cup… 2 its an excuse to go chill with the boys at the Bar.
I however was that fish out of water, I do not drink, I don’t necessarily enjoy soccer. Frankly I was there for the cute guys (in the TV and in the Bar) . The players both on and of the screen were in their best forms, the defence about their craft, the attacks on my self declared self esteem, the fans’ rallying behind their National team, was very impressive,
I was dazzled by the footwork, the drinks kept on coming, the conversation witty and hilarious, I felt like the world cup…coveted by all But at the end of the night I recognised the night as what it was, A Game were the best players win and weak sides are outwitted, outmatched, out muscled and outplayed .
in my own little cocoon I begin to wonder if all of the guy s out there are players, I mean it seem the lies. the flattery, the trying to impress has one goal …to score (Literally and otherwise) and if that is all that relationships have come down to, are we really willing to play that game? if u played will u get to the finals or will you suffer like Spain and get sent home with nothing to show except last year ‘s trophy? Is it worth playing if all are players? I mean engaged or otherwise these guys seem to want to enjoy both sides of the proverbial coin, they want the cake, the cookie and the ice cream from both sides of the fence and its not fair
Be Careful I the Game…they are a lot of Players out there. Better date the Coach
