Soccer, Philosophy And "Morals"

The BBC recently reported on a school in France that teaches young goal keepers both how to stop shots on goal and how to become a better, more moral person. They claim to be following the example of Albert Camus who said that everything he learned about life, he learned from football. (See the article and video here.)

One of the school's backers is former French national team keeper Fabien Barthez. While it is true that Barthez and Camus are similar in that both smoke(d), I doubt Camus was ever sanctioned for spitting on an official. Just a guess...

Thanks to Daryl Lee for the link.
