Football interlude: Go to the Phoenix game

We (the Phoenix) have a home “semi” today.  Now the use of the word semi is strange – if we win, we play the Newcastle Jets.  If we win that we play the loser of the two legged playoff between Sydney and Melbourne.  If we win that, we play the winner of the two legged playoff and are champions.

Anyway, we have a home game today in the finals round.  So get down to Westpac Stadium and support the Phoenix – the game is at 5pm.

That is all.

PS Actually, I think if we win today then we have another home game – spectacular!

    Yeah, except that it’s soccer. And soccer is the labour theory of value applied to sport: nobody cares about the outcome, which is usually a tie; it’s all about that the players tried hard. Ugh.

    I think it depends on what we define as the output from the game.

    Sure scoring goals and winning are important outputs. But seeing someone use a exquisite piece of skill to nearly score, or to prevent a goal also provides satisfaction.

    Also the lack of actual goals gives us more time to drink and sing without having to pay too much attention to what is happening …
