The best way to describe Soccer is as the World’s Religion. Nothing brings people together (other than America) like Futbol does. It is truly a remarkable phenomenon that can’t be appreciated fully unless you’re a part of it.

The impact Futbol has on people’s lives shouldn’t be underestimated. Not when miracles* occur because of it. What other sport can you claim that about?

Fanhouse had a link to this Vanity Fair Article telling the story of how Didier Drogba and The Beautiful Game managed to end a 5 year civil war that, like most Religious War’s, seemed to have no end in site.

*4th Paragraph reads – “Mr. Konate says many Ivorians believe the civil war started in 2002 because they had turned away from religion. He says they now believe only a miracle from God can save the country.”
