Full Time: Fading Images of the World Cup
The World Cup produces a lot of this-and-then-this. But it’s a month whose rhythm is set to those sudden bursts of amazement. Like a clock that chimes left-footed volleys; like a clock that chimes sobbing in the rain. But when you string those moments together, when you knit them into a narrative — I don’t know. Sometimes the moment before the beginning seems more magical than the moment after the ending, because watching sports is a special way of experiencing time.

To say I didn’t expect the outcome of today’s semifinal to be like this…is an understatement. I was initially very worried for Brazil and that now also includes inexplicable sadness. I was initially very conflicted about the game and am now still conflicted.
This has and continues to be a roller-coaster of insanity. I hope I get my head back after tonight’s sleep.
