I have not been able to keep up with the World Cup this go round like I was able to in South Africa in 2010, but I do know that one of the Spain’s core members for their 3 event streak’s international career ended in spectacular fashion. It’s already made the ESPN, social media rounds but David Villa’s goal was brilliant.

When he sat on the bench and cried it reminded me why I love sports. Beyond the endorsements, fans, money, championships, glory, fame, etc. it is still grown men playing a children’s game and giving it all they have until…until..they can’t, until Father Time quietly taps them on the shoulder and informs that their time in the sun has come to an end.
