you see, the problem with Americans (and I can say this BEING one) is that we only get really excited about sports that we invented ourselves. I think this stems from a deep seeded feeling of inadequacy or fear thereof. The easiest way to be the best at something is to invent it and have no outside competition; basketball, american football, baseball (though, I think the central and south american's might be better at that one anyway.)



I like watching soccer, but it can be a little slow-paced at time. However, I find it a HELL of a lot more fast-paced and entertaining than baseball.

I'll be the first to admit I love playing baseball, but yes, watching it is hard. However, I still like to have the Brewers on in the background most days. College World Series--my ass is planted in the recliner (or at the games!) for the duration.

I'll probably never be a soccer fan because I can't get past the stupid refs.

Hockey is by far the fastest, most interesting sport IMHO. Those athletes are amazing.

I will say England looked much more impressive against Sweden than they have in the previous two games. It'll be interesting to see if the form picks up in the elimination rounds for some of the teams that have failed to impress so far.

I've not actually managed to watch Ecuador play yet - I will on Sunday of course! England are struggling to find their true form. We've been shown up really so far. No real strikers on form (and now we're one down as Owen has gone home with a knee injury) and totally shown up defensively from set pieces in the last game with Sweden. At least we have a decent Midfield but i'm not sure it's enough......

Well, CONCACAF is looking LAME. Mexico had to rely on a draw between freakin' Iran & Angola in what should have been a cakewalk group, and the US needs a lot of help today to advance.

Default soccer is a panzy sport!

omg i tied getting into this but i cant. The usa just let up a goal in a MUST WIN GAME because the captain got kicked in the shin, and he decided to roll around on the ground like a little baby instead of covering the guy. WTF!!! How weak!!!
In American (real) football our players will play with broken limbs sometimes an entire season,let alone a game!!!
And the refs are terrible, with their little yellow cards, what a stupid sport. And you cant use your hands? who invented this game lizards? Humans are all about hands. Imagine playing an instrument without your hands? Or a painter without hands? (i guess Pollack could be an exception)
And whats up with the stretchers? What is this the 1800's?

Disclaimer: if usa wins this match and advances i still like soccer...

The diving is worse than the poor officiating in my opinion. I like the sport, but completely take your point about these guys being sissies. I'm surprised a real man would feel good about the questionable honor of falling down for no reason.

If God wanted us to play soccer we wouldn't have hands.

it would be pretty difficult to make and drink beer with no hands.

I think the hands are for THAT purpose. God has no problem with Soccer.
