Happy Wednesday everyone! Soccer?
If you have been watching any of the FIFA games, then you have to be someone who appreciates the game of football/soccer. To be honest I have only discovered the game in the last couple of years. Prior to that it was beyond me why anyone would want to watch men at sport. I thought it to be like any other sport game I’d seen over the years. NO. Not so. I actually found myself sitting in front of a television one day while a game of soccer was on, Italy was playing at the time, I can’t tell you who the other team was, I was mesmerized by the athletic prowess, the dexterity, the passion and determination that was unfolding before my eyes. The sound wasn’t on, all I saw was the ballet, the execution of movements that were almost unreal in the performance that played out before me. The game was fast, the colours on the screen were constantly moving, the effect was so artistic. Like an abstract painting come to life.
Now of course I watch with the sound on, and I get involved with whatever team I am taken by. My husband who understands the game and can tell you details that are lost on me, shakes his head at my excitement and sometimes very loud cries of encouragement to the players who can’t hear me. For me it is not a sporting event, it is a game of magic and dance, of fantastic energy that gives pleasure and excitement as you are drawn in the dynamics of the event. I decide on a team by the performance and their skill at capturing my imagination with their art form. If it is just a game of technical ho-hum plays, its boring I walk away. Does anyone else see it my way?
Isn’t Orange a dynamic colour? LOL what a game they played. I tell you ladies, turn off the sound, and watch a game, the energy and focus these guys have when they play is phenomenal. No hands, footwork bodies and head.
Have a good day everyone… Nederlands plays Australia today! You not going to be around, tape it!
