Passions abound in life, whether it be music, poetry or sports. Many a poem has brought a reader to tears, or even a song. That's what makes us all special and different, nice short piece Jan :)

The funny thing about that game is how Brazilians blame MICK JAGGER , of all people for the loss. It seems that every team he roots for loses. They've labeled him "Cold Foot". Love the rhyme, Jan !

Great two lines Jan, I saw it on TV last night and I could not believe how anyone could get caught up in a game and as for the tears well what is wrong with the world today, it is a just a game after all, do people cry when they lose at Monopoly, my opinion, take care my friend........Vera.........
