The Teen Titans said it best:

It is the most tedious of athletic events.

Its just people kicking a ball and then pretending to be hurt.

This Simpsons excerpt pretty much sums up my feelings about soccer:

But I still voted for Uruguay because they have the best national anthem--the most operatic and (musically) the longest:

I don't give a hoot, either, but I give some credit to Don Diego for at least posting something of interest.

Of course, he couldn't be bothered to reveal his real opinion, either.

When are you people going to realize that you have to talk, in order to have a conversation?

I'm one of those that chose England, and I was happy to see the United States never made the actual games.

Down to the final 4 England Croatia Belgium France

Fact over 100 million people watch the Super Bowl vs over 3 billion for the World Cup

Highest paid athlete - soccer player (in fact 2 of the top three)

Most popular sport world wide (except America) soccer


As kids in the US are playing more soccer (increasing the number of soccer moms) and the US will have a team entered when they host the World Cup in 2022 things might change

I think this instrument has been outlawed, but here's a reminder of how the last World Cup was not only boring, but irritating as hell:
