Not liking sports makes you a homo in my book. And soccer is a sport.

Nah, his free kick is unbelievable.

What!!! Its a free kick! Ive seen Beckham and Ronaldhino score better free kicks. He chase's that ball down and kicks it as its going out of bounds. That goal is insane.

Yeah, for my money, that's the greatest goal of all time as far as skill. Most important? Maybe Beckham's 93rd minute goal against Greece for the 2002 WC qualifier.

Greatest Soccer moment of my life, I ran around and outside my house three times.

This is right after Lescott tied it up.

To try and make it bigger than it is-is just ignorant.

soccer=blows

you mean like some people do for Halloween? So because you don't like it means it sucks?

Let me throw this out there...and I am sure this will be something many will just love to hear....

one big reason why soccer is not as accepted in the USA is that there are many many nations in the world that are far superior at the game. In my opinion, Americans generally want to be the best at anything and everything, and that isn't necessarily a bad thing, but when they can't be, well then it sucks, or it blows, or whatever else you wanna say about it. Same reason why there is a general lack of passion about most sports in Canada, other than hockey.

Thoughts?

Elite american athletes would get good at soccer real quick if there was big money in it like there is in NFL, NBA and MLB...

And I'm sure that there is big money in Europe in Soccer, but it's not as visible here as the other sports...

I dare say the elite soccer players are paid equally or maybe more than the elite football/baseball players...but thats just a guess.

They rack it up in endorsements. There jersey's and stuff get bought by the world not just the U.S. Didn't Beckham get like 250 million from the Galaxy or something?

True, and I said that... but not here in America they aren't...

My point was that here there's more incentive to play football and basketball particularly than anything else...
