World Cup Soccer ... here we go
You planning to watch any World Cup Soccer? I may check it out when the US team plays. But what is it about soccer that doesn’t take off in the US? I mean I know the kids love it. But when they become adults, most give it up and become fans of NFL, College Basketball … maybe Baseball.
I’m watching a World Cup game right now on TV. Is the field too big? Is it the fact that scoring hardly ever happens. How frustrating is it when the game is 0 to 0 for half the game? Is it the fact that when one of the players is barely hit, he cries like a baby, sometimes a stretcher is brought out to get him off the field … then I see him back in the game minutes later playing? Is it the idea that these guys are just running around taking shots, trying to get that lucky kick that might go in a goal? After all, there doesn’t seem to be any skill involved. It’s not like I’m trying to throw a football between two defenders to get it in the end field. Or like a baseball pitcher trying to throw a ball that a hitter can’t hit? Maybe there’s just something wrong about not having to use your hands to play the game?
I feel sorry that soccer doesn’t take off here in the US. I wish I could get into it … but for the most part, it’s just boring.
