The Chaaaaaampions

September 16, 2008

Although the rest of the world may be going to shit, today is also marks the real start to the 54th annual Champions League. Bask in the glory of the anthem. And on May 27th, 2009 we can all celebrate Chelsea’s victory in Rome! And since you asked, the lyrics to the anthem, right here (all you really need is the “chaaaaaaampions” part).

    Is there any place that you know of on the Internet that a person can watch soccer? I don’t even have cable — though there’s not exactly any on cable either.

    or just check out and for less…official streaming options.

    soccer is actually an english term. in fact it was in pretty common usage up until the americans started using it too. so it’s really more gauche to call out americans for using it :)

    I actually thought about this when I was writing my comment. I thought I’d stick with soccer. That said, I do think soccer/football/futbol is a far superior sport to American football.

    Soccer is far more athletic and less violent than American football. It privileges speed, endurance, skill, coordination, and athletic conditioning.

    American football encourages muscles and obesity (e.g., center).

    And there’s a certain simplicity — an organic nature — of soccer, which doesn’t exist with American football. American football is a really strange sport when you think about it. Soccer is one of the most basic activities you can think of — essentially it starts with kicking around a rock. That’s why it’s such a popular world sport, in part. There’s a beauty in its naturalness.

    Am I crazy? I think maybe. But I figure that’s okay.
