I’ve been enjoying watching the World Cup games when I can. I’d like to say that I do it for spiritual reasons, but though I’m sure Freya enjoys a sweaty, fit, aggressive male body as much as I do, I don’t think watching soccer actually constitutes a spiritual practice. (Though some of those shots and saves must have been divinely inspired.) Mainly, after playing soccer for ten years while growing up, I’m just happy to see it played well, and to have our team compete against other countries. FWIW, our Women’s Team has always been better than our Men’s team, so I’m just glad they’re in the Cup this year and likely are proceeding to the next round.
