Farewell, Dr. Socrates

An example of what Dr. Socrates brought to the game:

More about Socrates here, here, and here. This goal – in Brazil’s bitter loss to Italy in 1982 – is one I’ll never forget. Tele Santana’s Brazil was the best team at the World Cup, and despite losing, they were still world favorites.

One comment on “Farewell, Dr. Socrates
  1. to Ray Hudson- poetic soccer announcer and to Lionel Messi & Forsa Barcelona! World’s greatest sports team and world’s greatest player:
    “He doesn’t seem bothered
    by the weight of his own shadow”-
    the hypnotic ballerina
    that is Messi!
    “Symphonic football-
    nothing accidental abt it…
    layer upon layer…
    this Barcelona side”!
    Coach Pep Guadeola,
    but especially Messi-
    this little werewolf,
    searching for zombies…
    supra normal, extraterrestrial!
    We’re run out of adjectives-
    and look out for mixed metaphors,
    He of the
    chameleon eyes-
    a short legged bull
    Covered w eyes… or
    eg: Look who’s the rabbit,
    doing the donkey work!?
    The pressure makes diamonds-
    Lionel Messi- doesn’t live in the x’s and 0’s.
    But in the Magnetic Spectrum of Genius!!!
