My buddy Matt found this video that best illustrates why I just can’t get with soccer.
Check out their ‘creativity’ and ‘passion’ – at acting and faking injuries. The other fact is that the field is too damn big that you can’t get any good confrontations or worthwhile scoring. If anything is more played out, it’s this whole “David Beckham coming over to the US”. Ever since this deal was announced late last spring, this guy has played 0 games for the MLS. They didn’t even get over here until a few weeks ago, and now that he’s here he’s “hurt”.
