Football: Entrance to the World

Soccer is the world’s game. It is a universal language. But don’t call it soccer. Call it football.

Carry a ball with you to almost any part of the world, and once you bring it out you will be surrounded by kids. If you play the game well, you will be given immediate entrance to any culture, no other introductions needed. Show passion and skill, and you will forge camaraderie that would normally take months or years to develop.

  2. Gary, I agree 100% about both football & the 50 f/1.2. The neat thing is, when the 50 f/1.2 works, it’s an incredibly beautiful thing… just like football! JC
