The crowd reaction. The stakes (these 2 games decided the Barclay’s Premier League). The call. The improbability of the situation. The side by side of pure joy and sudden disappointment. And much pretty much everything else about this clip is a great example of why sports is the best.
I don’t follow soccer as closely as I follow baseball, basketball, football or hockey. I’m more of a casual soccer fan but the fans in attendance at this game are anything but casual. Soccer fans are a passionate group (to say the least) and their passion only intensifies when it involves a ManU/Man City rivalry and a league championship.
Moments like this are another great reminder of why I love sports – and sometimes it’s nice to be reminded.
