So, it’s world cup time, which means that the whole world is taken over by people who love football, even if the only time people care about football is during the world cup. Personally, I’m not that into it, world cup or not, in fact I don’t think I have seen a whole game in the past ten years, but maybe this is my year to get overwhelmingly involved in the joy. Perhaps!
As a non-football person, but one who has looked at some masculinity and sports history, I am hoping to look at a few instances of ideal masculinities, fair play (or lack thereof), sporting ethics and just generally showing how awesome history! Fingers crossed that I can pick out some key moments over the next month to do this!
