a fearful snob. I feel nothing but contempt for people for whom sport is important. When bread is assured, circuses fill men’s minds. I detest the excessive importance attached to football by hundreds of millions of my fellow beings. Try as I might to expunge the thought from my mind that this enthusiasm is a manifestation of human stupidity, I cannot.
