The world has been riveted with anguish, watching the rescue operation of the 12 young footballers and their coach who had been trapped for 18 grueling days underground in a cave in Thailand. The navy Seals in the country heading the operation confirmed that all were now saved and safely out. “We are not sure if this is a miracle, science or what,” the Seals stated. It was more than a miracle, it was the victory of human endeavor, a rare moment when people got together, tried to do good and saved lives instead of destroying them. The irony of all this was that the ordeal of those young footballers and their coach took place at the same time as the biggest football event, the FIFA World Cup, in Russia.

Every four years, the month of June becomes a month of magic and spectacle around the world. It’s FIFA World Cup time! And for millions of people around the world, and a few lonely Americans, football is the only game in town. It is for some a religion and a divine gift from above. In Egypt, shops, churches, and mosques close, at work people use all their sick days to stay home to watch the games, coffee shops are open all day and nights for the game, only time where the military regime let people in gathered and watching the game in public squares and coffee shops. People in Muslim countries even postpone their daily prayers until after the game. God can wait, but goals won’t.
