To continue my non television related hokum, I will talk a little more about men in shorts.. (Spoiler Alert) They. Are. Great.
I mean soccer brings “da feelz” out of people/athletes in ways that are quite rare in our society. Perhaps because the sport seems operatic on some level. The intermingling of power and finesse, players moving harmoniously, all while spectators take it all in, holding our breath for the exciting climax… Best opera ever right? Another reason for its greatness can be summed up in the oddly appropriate adage “It’s not over till the fat lady sings”. Boy has that been the case this cup. But I’m not writing to post about match specifics (though I still mourn the loss of Mexico, Nigeria, and the US’s tough exits), Instead, I will showcase the moments, emotions, (and yes hotness) through it’s purest form — The slightly doctored photograph.
