It started out as a beautiful day, but by halftime the lightning was cracking and the rain coming down … (kinda like the Chelsea vs. Club America game was going, actually). The extra-wet smoke-break at Cowboys stafium gives Sangyfarha a chance to analyze how weather plays into the 21st Century version of the beautiful game. Guess what – not only will the World Cup be looking at monster American football stadiums like these, but so will the European football leagues, Sang says.
I have a running gag about zombies as a modern parable of an incurable pandemic affecting mankind. Now lo and behold my flakiness becomes a semi-reality of sorts. The beginning of the end? Hardly, but eerie that football has fallen victim to my paranoia.
