Pregame Analysis: Soccer Match for Peace

The “Interreligious Soccer Match for Peace is set to take place on September 1st at 8:45 p.m. local time in Rome’s Olympic Stadium.

According to Catholic News Agency, the match will draw together past soccer players who represent different cultures and religions, including Buddhists, Christians – Catholic and Protestant – Jews, Hindus, Muslims and Shintos.

I won’t be watching, but one can just imagine how this match will go…

The Catholics, who started their pregame novena on August 24th, will have the perfect game plan, but the Protestants will reject it.
 
• The Hindus will pass to one another using their favorite play, connect-the-dots (otherwise known as the give-and-go).
 
• The Shintos, in spite of spirited play, will come up a little short.
 
• The Buddhists will be the assists leaders since they’re just so damned selfless
 
• The Jews will sell the tickets, the food, the souvenirs, and the television rights, but only after negotiating player contracts. (Oh, and they’ll also provide the team physician.)

• And last but not least, the Muslims will be shooting at every possible opportunity.
