Soccer fans are passionate. Some might even call them crazy. Even in the USA it seems to have finally caught on a bit. Yet a question troubles me about fans. Why aren’t they that passionate about other things? While there are some people that take college rivalries seriously, is the fact that the U.S. doesn’t have the same soccer environment the reason you don’t see the true loyal pride of European soccer fans or other countries national teams? If for example people cared so much about being a teacher or a doctor or even someone who works at McDonalds… would it change the way they do things? There are examples I’m sure of passionate people in ever profession. That’s not my point. My point is if there is passion inside of people, why do they only show it on rare events. Why do some people only show passion or compassion for certain people on birthdays, anniversaries, holidays? If life is a finite experience, then life should be about the passions we fill it with. If you’re spending your time doing things you love, surrounded by people you love, isn’t that way better than not? To conclude, a famous quotes says, “Life isn’t about the number of breaths you take, it’s about the times that take your breath away.” That said, here is to holding your breath and embracing the passion of another great day.
