Things I love. (20)

I love soccer. Really, any team sport will do. But soccer is unique. Something about the experience of using one's feet to make magic happen - a game where you always have to use your team-mates and cannot manage on your own. It is a game where you have to perform at your peak at all times, using ever ounce of athleticism in your body to ensure you are not letting your team down.

And it is a game where goals are so rare that getting one, and winning as a result, feels like a real accomplishment.

Soccer truly is the beautiful game.
