Soccer (or football) is a very big deal in many parts of the world, and Candace is one of the┬ámultitude who enjoys it. I don’t yet know if she’s into watching the game as a spectator, but she certainly enjoys playing. In this cartoon, I was hoping to poke a little fun at the number of times professional players are penalized for often violent rule infractions while stealing the ball from an opponent. Any sport, whether soccer, basketball, tennis, etcetera, becomes most intense at the professional level, and I imagine the refs and umps usually have their hands full.
