"The most successful candidate currently on offer is sport, which, short of providing funeral rites for its spectators, fulfils almost every religious function in the book."

Actually, FC Barcelona of Spain BBVA league (Football league) has started offering for its fan whether they like to be buried near their football idol. The closer the fan is buried to the idol, the more expensive the cost would be.

This move is copied from Boca Junior (from Argentina football league).

The reason for this move by FC Barcelona is to find an alternative source of revenue to cover its deficit.

So maybe a funeral rite is not that farfetched.


Football is Catholic. It's the 8th sacrament.
