Footballers wear Rainbow Laces in support of anti-homophobia campaign
"When you start supporting a football club, you don’t support it because of the trophies, or a player, or history, you support it because you find yourself.. Somewhere there.. A place where you belong."
—Dennis Bergkamp (inspired by x)
Football is awesome.
A football match would appear a metaphor for life, with its twists, its successes, its struggles, its injustices, and its hopes. Football, in its obvious manifestations, is mainly a machine to exalt passions and emotions––positive or negative, happy or tragic.
Football is the opera of the people

"I have a friend who doesn’t get football. He always asks me, ‘Why are countries so proud of their football team? Especially when they score; it sounds like a third world war with all the cheering and yelling.’ I admit, it can be dangerous mixing football and nationalism together. Yet somehow, they go together perfectly. That feeling of pride when your country scores. There’s nothing better, my friend. Absolutely nothing."
