There are entire districts in the Seattle metro area where 60+ percent of the residents are Hispanic, Somali,...

Quote: Originally Posted by Ambulance Chaser Five goals allowed out of six shots on goal is a pretty good indication.

But its easy to let the big moments slip between your fingers when you don't have some magnetic personalities and history that draws you in in the first place. I didn't read it as a criticism of the sport or of its fans, just that it's both a shame and completely...

The discussion actually has legs now unlike soccer snobs...
