I don’t want to give any spoilers, but I highly recommend reading this story put out by SB Nation about what football will look like in the future.
It looks at the future of football...in the year 17776. Very creatively written and presents a number of philosophical ideas about the future of humanity. It also presents a future for humanity I hadn’t considered before.
Forewarning: it’s long (25 chapters), so I recommend reading it over a number of days. It was originally released one chapter per day.
