A good friendly soccer (football) game this evening as Celtic FC comes to the home of the NE Revolution. Celtic is preparing for their season and the Revs are in the middle of theirs. The fitness and conditioning of the two teams is therefore considerably different and will make for an interesting game.
Celtic has already lost and tied on their three game trip to the USA. They have not scored a goal. Both of these factors should provide some good motivation for the Celtic players tonight.
How does it happen that Celtic FC comes to the USA to play the Revs? The coaches were former teammates (and roommates). It still comes down to personal connections.
What is the lesson in this? Other than how to play good soccer in the world today, the real worldly lesson is to take care of your personal network.
