Soccer: Perfect for the Post-Modern World

Frank Cannon & Richard Lessner declared soccer "truly Seinfeldesque, a game about nothing, sport as sensation." It represents the "nihilism, existentialism, and anomie that have overtaken Europe." And soccer is against human nature for its emphasis on the use of one's head and the illegal use of one's hands.

"Nil, Nil"

UPDATE: I've been a little behind in writing about soccer. Betsy Newmark has links and thoughts.
