............for English Football!!

First Liverpool FC (who may yet win the Premership Title this Sunday)
come back from a 3-0 drubbing at the Nou Camp in Barcelona to win a
stunning 4-0 victory in the return leg at Anfield on Tuesday night to
go through to the European Champions League Final in Madrid on June 1

Then last night Spurs (who lost 1-0 in the first leg in London) defy
all the odds to finally beat Ajax in Amsterdam on away goals aggregate
with an amazing 3-3 result taking them to Madrid too---to face
Liverpool in an All-English Final!!

Congratulations to both these great teams----and for displaying for
all the world to see exactly why football is far and away the most
popular and most watched sport on this planet!!

Congratulations on the new royal baby. They had earlier announced that his name would in part honor Duchess Meghan's American roots. I think it's great that they named him after the two-time Heisman Trophy winner.

Nah as soon as Harry and Meghan found out that Her Maj's favorite
record to boogie to was "Tighten Up" the choice of name was inevitable

I thought it was because the Royal Family calls Prince Charles Jughead.

His middle name is Harrison, after Wilbert I guess. They're sending a
message to the U.S.A.--let's stick together.

I'd venture to speculate that that is due to the fact that all you need to play in the way of equipment is a ball. That leads to its popularity in underprivileged locales.

What? No, you need cleats, you need nets, you *definitely* need
referees, you need personal protective equipment...

Not to play sandlot style, which is what sews the seeds for interest in the adult game. You need a ball. The rest can be bare feet, any space between two markers. Referees? C'mon.

You don't necessarily even need a ball. In ancient Rome they played with the heads of their vanquished enemies.

I've done baseball games in the past alongside a soccer field down in Rahway, not far from you. Even with referees there were usually problems in the men's soccer games, figthts and stuff.

Hall of Fame umpire Doug Harvey had a good story about teams that thought they could play without umpires. It was like 1960 or so and he was working a spring training game with a 3 man crew. They finished 9 innings and the teams wanted to play another 3 innings. Doug was the crew chief, and they were getting $75 each for the game. Doug told the teams that they would be willing to stay and work the extra 3 innings for the same rate, $25 each for the extra 3 innings. The teams scoffed at having to pay them to stay and said that they did not need umpires and would play without them. So Doug and his 2 partners walked down to a small shed in the left field corner out of play to change. They were not even in there 5 minutes when they heard all kinds of commotion going on. They came out of the shed and the two teams were brawling.

There's a difference between organized sports leagues and kids playing
team games in the schoolyard or on an empty lot, and in most of the
world, and even in the U.S. until the last three decades or so, most
kids learn a sport by playing it with minimal equipment and no
supervision, the way I played softball, the way inner city kids still
play basketball, and the way, in most of the world, kids still first
play soccer. In Ethiopia, when I was there, kids played soccer just as
Bill described, with some facsimile of a ball, a couple of rags or
stones to mark the goals, and, literally, bare feet.
