QUOTE of the moment found on Jay Nordlinger’s Impromptus – National Review Online
Simon Heffer, of The Spectator, is a Brit who favors cricket over soccer. Listen to him, for a second:
“[Soccer] is not, in my view, a sport: it is somewhere between a business racket and a mental illness. I associate it with all the worst aspects of our society — violence, drunkenness, drugs, racism, exploitation, greed and stupidity; and that’s just for starters.”
I gotta admit; I like a well turned phrase and Mr. Heffer turned it well.
