Soccer

HI. Most of you are probably aware by now that it's soccer season. Soccer season occurs when actual soccer season is over, and the world cup happens. Another thing that happens is charity soccer games. We are involved in one next week, and it's like this:

Right To Play is an international organization aimed at empowering and building skills of children in the developing world through sport, focusing specifically on girls, people with disabilities, children affected with HIV/AIDS, refugees and street kids. The organization uses soccer in 23 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and South America to promote things like education, health promotion and disease prevention, and community development.

When people say "sports are stupid", besides the fact that sports are in fact mostly great, this is one of the ways they are actually important as well. Sport is something that touches people everywhere on the planet, and is as culturally prevalent and important as music. The ridiculous global lead up to the world cup this year should help explain what I mean. Kids everywhere in the world want to lead happy and productive lives, and in most cases just want to play soccer.

Anyhow, we're taking part in a NXNE soccer (football) game next week to benefit Right To Play - a bunch of music people are playing against a bunch of industry people (you can see the lineup HERE) including Rick The Temp. Players are being sponsored individually to raise money, so if this sounds like the kind of thing that might be up your alley, you can go

HERE

to donate money, even if its like $5, or even if you are reading this blog in Djibouti on vacation.
And/Also if you are in Toronto, you can come watch the game. It's Sunday June 20th at BMO Field.

THANKS.

Wow, you're playing footy? I would love to see that! Although I would consider myself in the group of people who think sports are "dumb", I love soccer. It's the only sport that is available for people in third world countries. You don't need fancy equipment or any specific arena. I will definitely be supporting this cause. Oh, and Ben should put his Man City money where his mouth is and get on that field!

What the hell? This is so stupid on so many levels. a) they're both on the same team, b) I don't know if you're familiar with soccer, but it ain't the NFL. He'll probably get a red card and not even get to play. Oh, and I think his name might be "Brendan". All I did was look at the page, see how smart I am? Don't get me wrong, fuck Broken Social Scene. I'm just saying, that was fucking stupid.

I wonder why in America the word soccer is used to define football; in Europe, people talk about american football when talking of your kind of rugby; a proper manner for americans when talking about football (with the round ball) would be european football

Along with all celebration for the event, one thing that is most prominent is the choice of car one selects for the occasion.
