The Rhythm of Life

The Sambas have exited the World Cup. Yesterday the Nederlands dismissed the reigning world champions in a game that was fascinating for its evolving rhythm and pace. The ebb and flow of that game was clearly evident as the match unfolded and played out like a symphony, accompanied by vuvuzelas.

Make no mistake, the game of soccer has an ebb and flow and if you listen closely you can hear the beat.

I will miss the Sambas, but the drum beat of this game lives on. I will miss Ghana too. As the last African nation standing, they carried the rhythm of a continent. Did you know that the origin of music was Africa, and at the root is the human heartbeat?

Soccer is life.
