I enjoy this take on Ted Lasso as I had not thought of the playfulness, as much as the wholesomeness. Speaking of the “holy” part of the fool though, I have been thinking a lot about this quote from a few weeks ago: “One doesn’t expect to get from life what you have already learned it cannot give. Rather one begins to see that life is a kind of sowing time and the harvest is not yet here.” The docent at the Van Gogh exhibit says this to Ted, maybe drawing from Van Gogh’s religious background. It is a fairly straightforward plot reference in the show, but I still really like it.
