Nice, yes, soccer/football has spawned so much culture, usually good. Just the tradition of chant is enough to rivet a cultural historian. And the way the rules of the game are applied, it's so loose at times, open to interpretation by refs and FIFA officials...it's as human a cultural artifact as any sports get.


"Just the tradition of chant is enough to rivet a cultural historian ..."

I love that! Thanks, Eric.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
