Futbol

 

When futbol became football,

When the black and white spherical ball became a brown prolate spheroid,

When teams did not consist of twenty-two people, but fifty,

When a gol became a touchdown,

When two halves became four quarters,

When a forward became a wide receiver,

When Diego Maradona became Dan Marino,

When the final of the World Cup became the “Super Bowl,”

When Colombia became The United States,

My body adapted, but my heart remained the same.
