Football fans come in all shapes and sizes

A blind man leads supporters at Merids AD-UH Badajoz from the Spanish 4th division.  Even though he cannot see the match, being amongst his fellow fans, hearing their voice, gives this individual a sense of belonging.  This sort of aggregation is why football can mean so much more than the result of a match.

Legendary Atalanta Capo speaking to players, club, and fans “When things go well, we are all happy to celebrate, but when things go badly we have to show our character.  No more going out dancing when things are going badly.  Stop disrespecting the people who show you love even though they don’t know you.  You have to be professionals.  When things go badly, the club, the fans, and the players all need to have a moment of self-reflection.  You have to show your commitment off of this pitch. We don’t want to see you going out after we lose match!”
Atalanta: grande Leader...grande Capo!
