I wonder if football or other sports shape a person's life much more than a Sunday morning in church.

Yes, the question of identity-formation and -valuation -- and I'm thinking about the fan, not the athlete -- especially in the wake of the massive cultural mourning in Brazil in the wake of its football team's massacre by Germany. And at this level, the issue of nationalism as well as sport intervenes. Of course, we all have multiple identities, but the absoluteness of being-in-Christ is ever threatened by being-in-whatever. And the thought of being-in-Arsenal -- principalities and powers, or what!


I wouldn't go so far to imply that Arsenal are a power. . .
