What is play?

Play is also:
The Fabric of Everyday Life

Frederik: But then again, it's like there is football in everything. It's kind of a core, where everything begins, almost. It's like... How can I explain it...? (the other boys giggles)
Int: It's the point of departure?
Frederik: It's the point of departure. Also, there is somthing that keeps you going. For example, if you only sat there, looking at each other, and like... 'How are you doing?' 'Yeah, the weather is nice'... But then, in FIFA, you can sit and play and 'wow, goal!' instead of just 'ooh, ooh'. You can keep yourselves going more, so to speak.
