    This is fantastically ignorant.

    No, I find soccer incredibly boring to watch.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    As do I. When younger I enjoyed playing it, but hated watching it.

    Same with golf.

    I only like watching my kids play soccer. Watching grown ups play it is painful.

    Agree 100% on the golf thing. I love golf and could play all day. I'd rather watch Showgirls again than watch golf on television.

    There's a theory that soccer is popular because it's the cheapest port around. It doesn't cost much to learn how to kick a ball or set up a net.

    One of the best sports events I've ever seen was a soccer game, a Champions League game between Celtic and Barcelona. Game was in Glasgow and both teams play a beautiful, attacking style of fitba. The result was Celtic 2-3 Barcelona and by the end of the game the Celtic supporters were chanting, "Barca! Barca!" and the visiting Spaniards were chanting, "Celtic! Celtic!" It was a wonderful game.
    Having said that, you're also liable (if you watch Italian teams) to see this...

    Yes. Greatest single sporting event on the planet enjoyed by billions.

    Ironic coming from someone who watches a sport where you can't even see the puck half the time and they break up the play with fights just to keep the crowd interested.
