Girls At Play
For all of those focussed on the big-ticket items in sport, you are missing something worthwhile.
Believe it or not, I like women's soccer/football. The topnotch teams play a version of the game that resembles what I used to play. It lacks the physical brutally, which now dominates the men's game. It is a purer form of the sport.
The World Cup competition for women has started in Germany and will run for weeks. The German team have won the last three titles, adding another facet of hate to an already disliked nation. These girls do not deserve the scorn; they earned those titles through skill, hard work, and dogged determination.
The latest German team won their first match against Canada. The score was 2-1, but should have been higher. These girls are good.
