    Don't take it personally, soccer fans... most sports bore the crap out of me. At least, watching them does.

    Soccer isn't something that interests me to watch. I find it boring as I do baseball and basketball. Now if you want to play soccer, baseball or basketball then it becomes fun. But as far as watching sports, football and hockey are what interest me.

    FYI, the Economist has a good piece on why the three biggest nations in the world, China, India and the US have essentially no football representation.



    G A W D.....The Americans beat the team from Ghana today..How is that no representation?

    soccer fanatics have spent billions trying to make this sport commercially successful in the USA. it has failed and of all the major sports a kid can play, soccer is the one most likely to lead to surgery. BTW, my father was at top 5 HS soccer player in the USA and was a two time All-American and my niece went to a top 10 D-I soccer school on a full soccer ride.



    Hey TD, I thought my son in law was going to cry, but even he had to admit that the Spurs were the better team this year...They were like dynamos and it was a fun game to watch....

I love the fact that just one score is so incredbly important in a soccer match. If it is my team, I can be on the edge of my seat the entire game, if I attend a game live, it really sucks when you have to hit the bathroom.. Spend a week in Argentina, see the passion, once you get it, you love it.


    I watched Argentina play on Saturday. I love the way they slide in next to an opponent to knock the ball away....it looks like a baseball player sliding into home base, and they didn't trip any of the players..Today Ghana did it too, but tripped almost every player on their butts, some injuries too I believe....
