It never ceases to amaze me what you can find on the Internet… Would you believe a site full of poems about soccer/football? 10,000+ poems? Football Poets has this plus new poems submitted almost every day.

There are a lot of Euro 2008 submissions in the new section. Here’s one that ends thusly:

Not just a Spanish victory, a victory we share,
for all lovers of real football, who play it and who dare,
to tear up the coaching textbook and scatter the pieces,
to play with brilliance and flair that never ceases.
We must bow down before these resilient darers,
Total football’s new standard bearers?

So get in touch with your inner Soccer Shakespeare. I just wish they had a ‘Random Poem’ feature – that would be neat.
