Ever thought of soccer as a religion? Well for those who are engaged enough it becomes a religion. Well, sort of. The best thing is the feeling of family in the community of fans. Yes, the fans of a soccer team become sort of a family. Win together. Loose together. Smile together. Cry together. Celebrate together, always.
But of soccer is a religion than there are so many other sports are religions too, right? Hockey, American football, tennis, handball, lacrosse and so many more. But there is one religion we should not forget: Music.
Music is one of the most important religions out there. ‘Cause when your soccer team won a match and you are celebrating, you most likely celebrate with music. Right? And when you heart is broken by a guy (or girl) you turn to music, or at least that’s what I do. I just love music, but it’s not my only religion. I guess I’m a religion cheater; I belong to more than three religions. First of all the religions that we all count as religions: I’m Christian. Then the sports religions: Soccer, handball and hockey all the way! And of course music, couldn’t live without it! I probably belong to other religions as well, but these are the once I count as my main religions.
Of course as the geek I am I see a lot of holes in my Christian beliefs story, but at the same time I see a lot of holes in the scientific theories. Finding the balance can be hard, but for now I’ll just let my mind philosophize over those questions as they come.
