Football, as it's more prominently known in Europe, has a global following that idolizes players, clubs, and individual leagues, like Americans and their own home sport. There's loads of football books to choose from, but not all of them are as interesting or as worthwhile for all the various types of football fans. Depending on whether you want an autobiography, or something a little more broad, like something on the history of one particular team, it's easy to get bogged down by the less sensible texts floating out there.
Feminism has had its fair share of leaders, but recognizing the most celebrated of them all isn't so difficult once the veil of history has been lifted. Some might feel that the things we do or the things we say will eventually if made worthy, grant us some sort of stardom. Some sort of purpose forever etched into history. However, this is not the case.
It's not easy to score in soccer, let alone one of the most prominent sports championships on the planet. While teams in the NFL's Super Bowl may get off somewhere between one and five touchdowns, a goal in FIFA's World Cup is like catching sight of an anomaly. And don't try to compare it to the 2017 World Series, either. Next to the difficulty of hitting a baseball out of the park, scoring a goal in soccer is the second most difficult task to preform. That's right, in all of sports. This can be backed by sound evidence produced by an astrophysicist and recorded in an NPR article, which was published last June.
This isn't the NFL Quarterly Awards; this is FIFA we're talking about; the original football. La Liga's FC Barcelona, otherwise called 'Barca' by most diehard fans, tends to play a variety of different types of on-pitch fieldwork. They've been known to utilize and advance the quickest players in the game over the years, and their program has evolved into a global image with various suitors at the helm. For instance, the modern foot-king for the team is Lionel Messi, an Argentinian forward who is as stoic as he is a God at finesse on the pitch. He can not only play the most advanced defensive posts, but he can also attack with the force of a shotgun, his goals tearing goalies apart each and every try.
War isn't pretty. Odds are you know of someone in the military, or at least have had a relative in one of the many wars from our brutal past. Either way, it doesn't take an astrophysicist to know how utterly destructive war is to many various things, such as international relations, the human psyche, physical health, Earth itself, and much more. Whether or not there is a victor, and even if it is America that triumphs, there is no happy endings in any war, nor is there really a true winner. That's the myth of war, the fact that nothing but death comes with it.
In this era of Trump and a modern American schism, age old ideals are beginning to fade, alongside the conditions of how we have adopted our freedom. It seems that, in this day and age, we are not only attacked, but vilified for a number of our own personal ideals and opinions. That's not what this country was built upon. Sometimes I wonder, knowingly so, if George Washington was correct when he had denounced the condition of party politics in his 1796 farewell address:
