Soccer as a Seinfeldian Metaphor

Frank Cannon & Richard Lessner write about the Nihilism of Soccer: "Soccer is the perfect game for the post-modern world. It's the quintessential expression of the nihilism that prevails in many cultures, which doubtlessly accounts for its wild popularity in Europe. Soccer is truly Seinfeldesque, a game about nothing, sport as sensation."
