The spirit of football!!

Just three more games to go, and the excitement couldn't be more! Just the right time to say those amazing lines by Grantland Rice from "Alumunus Football," one more time!

For when the One Great Scorer comes
To write against your name,
He marks-not that you won or lost-
But how you played the game!

In just those four lines it captures the very spirit of every game. And so it is that even when teams like Argentina go out of the race, we can never forget the passion with which they played the game. The 24-pass goal in their match against Serbia is the stuff magic is made up of. The video below is a treat to watch, and its just amazing to see the goal and an impassioned Maradonna watching magic (for once from outside the field) at the end of the video!
