So I'm sitting here at my office with a lot of foreigners and they are going nuts over World Cup Soccer, er, "futball". I tried watching soccer but found it absolutely boring. I even went to the 3rd place World Cup Soccer game back when it was in the US at the Rose Bowl (Sweden vs. Bulgaria) and still found it dull - the only thing of interest were the Scandinavian girls in the crowd.
These soccer guys run around and kick the ball back and forth and maybe, just maybe kick it into the net. The vast majority of the game is spent kicking the ball to each other. ZZZZZZzzzzzzzz BORING! Where are the hits? Where are the tackles? Where are the smashes? Where's the violence? Most importantly, where's the excitement?
Girls play soccer, MEN play football.
