Soccer & The City


After the Germany-Turkey Game on the F train© Davide Corvallo

I don't care for sports. And luckily I am married to a man who doesn't care about sports either. However there is something alluring about the slow infiltration of soccer enthusiasm in the city of New York. While team sports can be divisive, in New York it is more likely to illustrate how people from different cultures get along for the most part.
During the world cup one could wonder from France to Germany to Italy to Argentina and hear tales from as far away as Thailand where monks would be watching the game. It was fun.
