Hail Mary

 

Soccer may not be as complex as baseball or (American) football, but I manage to appreciate the skills of the world’s best players as they compete on the world’s biggest stage. But sometimes I wonder about this loosey-goosey approach to the clock. There’s no scoreboard showing time winding down; rather, it winds upward until it reaches the 45-minute or 90-minute mark, and then continues for “stoppage” time. From what I can tell, the amount of stoppage time added to any given half is determined by randomly selecting a number between 3 and 5. Then, the clock continues for something in the general vicnity of 3 or 4 or 5 minutes.  

 

last second shotWhere Did That Clock Come From?

 

Of course, it doesn’t really matter. It’s not like you ever see desperate, last second crossing passes leading to scores anyway.
