Philosophy on the Pitch

I know I haven’t been doing many serious posts lately, but no worries; with this post the trend will continue!

That has to be one of the funniest videos I have ever seen. Germany vs. Greece. Philosophy Futbol!

“And here come the Greeks, led out by their veteran center, Heraclitus… Let’s look at their team. As you’d expect, a much more defensive line up. Plato’s in goal. Socrates, the front runner there, and Aristotle as sweeper…. Aristotle, very much the man in form”

Simply brilliant.

Soccer Pro Turned Seminarian

h/t to Thomas over at the American Papist. For those who do not know, Chase Higlenbrinck was a professional soccer player in MLS who recently heeded a calling to the (Roman Catholic) priesthood. Yesterday ESPN Page 2 did a wonderful story on Chase and what he is doing now. You can find the story here. Highly recommended reading for Catholic soccer fans :)
