The World is Round: About Soccerblog.com
"Time is an awkard inconvenience between football matches," said the french existentialist Albert Camus. He should know- he was a goalkeeper! And not just for the team down the street.
As goalkeeper for Algeria, Camus found the missing link between football and existentialism: "All I know most surely about morality and obligations, I owe to football." And went on to win the Nobel Prize in Literature.
Name another sport where the goalie wins the Nobel Prize. I dare you!
