Ok how do I explain football. Well one of the greatest managers of all time one quoted "Football isn't a matter of life or death, its much more important than that!"
Now this may seem a bit extreme to some but to the majority of football fans it can really fel like that. Football is something that can make you feel like the happiest or sadest person in the world. It can fill you with such happiness as to be impossible to explain. I have seen my Liverpool win the European cup 3 times (I was too young for the other 2) I have seem them win championships and various cups and that feeling you have as the final whistle goes is beyond explaination. The elation and joy, especially when shared among other supporters is somethingvery special, it can bring complete strangers together and of course on the other side that feeling of defeat, especially in a final is heartbreaking, but again it can bring complete strangers together, like a support group if you like.
Football is sexy, passionate, thrilling, inspiring and to some can be compated to a religion. It can create rivalries and enemies but of course can create friendship. Just look at this World Cup, you see people from all over the world coming together to share that day, that moment.
Of course like all sports it isnt perfect, there is an element of cheating and corruption but what we see on the field is the real game, the game of FOOTBALL !!!
