My opinion on Soccer/Football

He’s a Brazilian of course he likes soccer/football!

Actually, no, I don’t like soccer/football at all…

Still bitter about the World Cup?

I’ve never been, most other Brazilians were pretty upset about it, I laughed so much that day, I was playing Black Ops II while my family was busy watching the match at the living room, even while wearing headphones and with the door closed you could still hear the game and people screaming at the window, I remember I lost it when I heard someone yelling “BAD TEAM” of course it was in Portuguese.

Ok so when exactly did you started disliking the sport?

To be honest, I don’t have a specific date to mark on the calendar, I remember having to play it so many times over the years just to complete a team, and suck at it, while everyone else was having fun or taking it more to a competitive side, I was rather bored.
Soccer/football is something unavoidable here, everywhere you go you’ll hear people talking about last night’s game, how amazing that one player is, how superior [Insert team name here] is and how awful [Insert team name here] is, and so on.

I live on an apartment complex, so wanting it or not you’ll know when someone scores on the game, the reason being the noise, you’ll hear people screaming “GO [Insert team name here]” SUCK IT [Insert team name here]”, using air horns, vuvuzelas, cars horns and whatever they can use. While I’m not sure everywhere in the country is like this, I wouldn’t doubt it considering how big of a thing it is around here.

Video game wise, I’m not sure why FIFA and PES are still being released yearly, the only difference between them and their previous version is a bit of a graphical difference, some changes regarding to the team and occasionally a new feature, this argument can be made about any yearly released game like Call of Duty or sports games.

I’ve went to a stadium at least twice in my life, one of them was to watch a match with my cousins, and the other one was to watch a Foo Fighters concert with them,
Can you guess which one I had more fun going to?
If you guessed watching the game you clearly haven’t been reading this in the right order.
I’m not gonna lie, I’ve fun watching the game with them, not because of the actual game, but to the company I was with,  I cheered with them, it’d feel awkward being the only one not to, plus I wanted to make them happy knowing that I was having a good time with them, In the end the team they were rooting for won, hooray, at the end of the night we went to a burger joint to eat something, whether it was a celebratory thing or because we were really hungry, we may never know, or care in fact, on that day I’ve discovered that even if you’re doing something that you’d consider boring, the right company can make that experience really enjoyable.

Conclusion

Is there anything wrong with liking the soccer/football? absolutely not, you can enjoy playing it or watching a match as much as you want, if you’re having fun doing so that’s all the matters, just because we’re into different things that doesn’t mean I won’t respect you as a person.
There’s still one question that bothers me to this day, If I don’t like soccer/football as a sport or as a video game, why the hell do I enjoy Rocket League so much?

A brief introduction to the blog.

Hello everybody, I’ve decided to make a blog so I could share my thoughts and experiences to the world.

“Why don’t you just share it on your Facebook account Enrico?”

Because I want to do something more personal, something that whenever someone wants to know a bit more about me, they would know the place, Also I made this blog for a special occasion that will happen very soon in my life, so stay tuned for that!

“What are you going to post on the blog?”

Good question, and every question demand a good answer, right? Well you see, I’ve never done anything similar to this before, I want to post all sorts of different things here, things that are close to my heart or that I feel the need to share with the world, so expect content about past, present and future adventures, gaming related stuff, movies, series and cartoons I’d like reminisce or just recently experienced, thoughts on random things and so on, so don’t be surprised if one day I talk about food and the other I talk about a book, search for a specific category if you’re not interested in the others.

“Why is your logo similar to the Scott Pilgrim one?”

I’m a big fan of the series, I’ve watched the movie countless times, read the graphic novel and played the video game, I really miss the game and wish they’d re-release it on the current generation consoles and PC.

“Why the fuck is this blog in English?”

Well, because I want to reach an wider audience with my content, if you can’t understand it, sorry for making you use a translator.

So I guess that’s pretty much it for the first post, hopefully you’ll enjoy reading the future ones, I’ll see you guys around!
