Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. Each time football and women's basketball is more common since society is beginning to change in that aspect since people want there to be equality between men and women, that none is above the other.

    Before it was not common to see teams of girls of soccer or basketball, these teams were less appreciated and the truth is what they would continue to be but not in the way of before, for example, women's matches placed in more secondary or tertiary channels as they do not give as much importance as those of men since these parties put them on the main channels so that when you turn on the TV you get out and you watch them.

    I think that this will gradually change the air, since it has had a great evolution in all this time and now there are many more people who watch women's football and basketball games.
