The Run of Play is a blog about
the wonder and terror of soccer.
We left the window open during a match in October 2007 and a strange wind blew into the room.
Now we walk the forgotten byways of football with a lonely tread, searching for the beautiful, the bewildering, the haunting, and the absurd.
Can we get the Childlike Empress to offer a take on this? How about Morla the Swamp Tortoise? It’s never going to stop, is it? There is neither beginning nor ending, neither plenitude nor surcease, merely the infinite recurrence of finite combinations in time. Please, could someone spare an amor fati?
