Interesting article - it's something I have thought about for many years. I will alert you to this poem by Adam Strong as I stood up and applauded when I finished it.

Reading that poem made me think how when I'm on the soccer field I'm occasionally thinking absolutely nothing at all.

This is amazing, for sure the routines in soccer can match up to be poetic, other than the few unexpected happenings that occur.
