It's Sunday, This Is Football

I'm a fan of football. All sorts of football. I play fantasy football, I'm a big college football fan, and I like to play a little two-hand touch on Thanksgiving Morning. But today, I'm talking about the football with penalty kicks, not penalty yards. You Yanks call it "soccer." I don't have any sort of premium cable package, so I am a seasonal fan- like when the Euros or the World Cup are on network television. The next Cup is in South Africa during the summer of 2010, and I can barely stand the anticipation. But honestly, I just got way more excited about the World Cup of 2018:

The website behind Israel-Palestine bid is well-thought out, streamlined, really intuitive, and totally worth a visit. Oh yeah, and it's actually a side project of OneVoice, a movement of people "eager to support a serious process, leading to a comprehensive agreement that will fulfill the hopes and aspirations of both the Palestinian and the Israeli people for a two-state solution." That makes sense to me. And, I found out, a bunch of other people, too. Nearly 650,000 (I was number 646,402) voices are singing the song of a two-state solution in perfect harmony. Add your voice to the chorus. And go watch some (real) football.

"Peace and football are the best combination."
