World Cup Haikus: Signals and Noise

Signal and Noise

 

 

Match Day 8

Maybe because it’s the first year I’m taking the subway to work, but this is the first World Cup where I’ve noticed strangers rockin’ their countries kits.

This week alone I’ve seen 2 Argentinas, a Germany, and a Mexico. And then on Friday, out of no where, a French “Henry” number 12 shirt.

I always want to yell something real at these true believers. Something like “aww man, cool jersey bro.”  The best I could muster was an awkward thumbs up to the German gentleman . He smiled an efficient smile and got off at the next stop.
