How the World Cup is making us uncomfortable
We’re getting to the point now where I’m thinking, ‘What is the point of this piece?’
Well, I think that the World Cups have done this for me, and I think it’s a good thing, because I can’t think of any other sport where you’re so inundated with these articles, and they’re really just trying to tell you the world is a nasty place, or that you shouldn’t do this or that, and it’s like, ‘Oh, OK, I can do that.’
And you’re kind of like, “Oh, okay, then I can just go do it.”
And you know what?
It’s not that I hate doing it.
It’s just that it’s kind of a waste of time.
If I had a hundred bucks, I’d just buy the whole World Cup, but if I had one million, I wouldn’t want to do it.
So, it’s nice that they’re trying to change the game.
You know, I don’t care about the fact that it is a terrible sport or whatever, but I think people are just a little bit too comfortable in their own heads, and in their way of thinking.
They’re not really thinking critically about it.
I think this is kind of the perfect opportunity for people to be really critical about it, and really engage with the World Championships.
And I think, you know, there are some great moments in it, like how Brazil lost in the semifinals to Croatia, and how Italy came back and won in the quarterfinals against Sweden, and Croatia’s game was kind of just incredible.
I mean, that’s a fantastic game to watch.
So I think there’s definitely a lot of positives that can come from this, and that’s what I’m hoping to see.
I know it’s not going to be perfect, but hopefully, people will have a little more respect for the game and for the players, and for each other and for themselves, and then it’ll be really, really fun.
