You'd have probably been better off watching the golf ;-)


I am glad someone else feels this way too. I cannot get into the soccer. Like, at all. I just keep wishing it were American football, or hockey.


That was a very ugly game, to say the least. But for every game like that, there's a Germany-Poland, or a US-Italy.

It's like any other sport - not all 162 baseball games in a season are good, and not every World Cup game is good. But soccer's a great sport to watch - more so in a communal setting, a bar plus a TV plus bunch of soccer fans makes for a fun day out.

Give soccer another chance - watch France vs. Spain tomorrow, or Brazil vs. Ghana, and you'll see a much better display. Hopefully from the officials as well.

The faking of injuries and the capricious referees are the biggest reasons why soccer won't catch on in America.

Americans don't respect athletes who pretend they are hurt and make matters worse by faking injury in order to gain some sort of advantage.

I'm a soccer fan but the sport is seriously flawed and the World Cup was a PR disaster in America.
