World Cup Continued

When I think of a movement in History especially in Art History I often think of a key character, a person who changed the past to a newer past, one who is not necessarily the most famous person in that movement but is important and without whom that movement would never have existed. Unfairly I never choose a famous person. My mom says it is because I hate to see someone other than myself being famous. Perhaps it is true. I don’t know why; maybe because I know I won’t be worldly known in my life time or even after my life but I think it is at least possible for me to be important. So I chose people who are in some kind of a shadow. My key characters are painters, writers, artists and thinkers who are secondary to the rest of the world. Although most of the time the facts point out to me that neither I am important nor are my chosen key characters.

I was following England’s team in the World Cup and now they are eliminated.

Garry Lineker, England soccer alum and current sports anchor, once said "Football is a simple game; 22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans win."
