Despite His White Boots

Football, football, football and, if the mood takes me, more football.

I Want it NOW

I thought this was quite interesting, if you like football, it's the BBC's South American guy talking about Sao Paulo. Especially this bit if you can't be arsed with the whole thing :

"He [Sao Paulo coach Paulo Autori] pointed out that football develops in harmony with society. Everything is now dominated by the desire for instant success. Society is quicker, more competitive, more violent, and these values obviously permeate through to football. He worried that rather than being a healthy symbol of violence, football was in danger of becoming an approximation of the real thing."

Certainly the part about wanting instant success has considerable relevance to the way many people approach poker IMO.
