I'm sorry, but soccer to me is like the metric system and communism - just another European innovation that they keep trying to tell me is great and something that the U.S. should support.
As a red-blooded American, I can't support a game that can end in a tie, doesn't really have a set time of play - as far as I can tell, the game just ends after the refs decide they've played enough extra (injury) minutes, and be decided on penalty kicks - wouldn't that be an exciting NBA final? Dallas & Miami tied after two overtimes - and now they will each get to shoot 5 free throws?
So the rest of the world plays Soccer (Football)? So what, I'm going to assume that's because all they can afford is one ball.
As Americans we must resist this ridiculous game and continue to support sports that require sophisticated and expensive technology like football helmets and pads, baseball gloves and bats and even the latest $100 Air Jordans and breakaway rims for basketball.
