Soccer is soooooo Boring

Well, I watched the World Cup Final.

Here's a better idea.
Give each team 1 point.
Play for 10 minutes.
Go to penalty kicks.

I see these commercials on tv where players are doing all these fancy 'bend it like beckham' moves but I don't see any of that on the field. When somebody finally does get lined up for a shot, it's a wild kick that sails 20 ft over the goal. Yeah, REAL exciting.

These are the worlds best goalies and they can only stop 1 out of 10 penalty shots? They might as well have me in there.

I'll take good ol' fashioned smash n' bash American football, thank you.

The offsides rule should go right out the window.

I played for years when I was a kid and I always thought that 1) it's a stupid and almost indecipherable rule mainly used by refs biased against your team and 2) it keeps the scoring down.

Yay for scores of 0-1 all the time. Pfffrt.

I dont know how anyone can compare the the validity of something as ridiculous as sports, might as well be arguing whether elephants or rhinos are better to keep in the living room.

I firmly believe that spectator sports are for idiots, playing is one thing, I enjoyed playing football in high school, and soccer before that, I still enjoy a game of basketball or baseball, even frisbee golf is at least interesting, but only to play, why would you want to watch someone else play?

The point I really wanted to make was that I heard Drudge the other day going on about how america just ignores this gigantic media event, that is somehow makes us out of touch with the rest of the world. but why shouldnt we ignore it? Its all just commercialized garbage to appease the masses and distract them from everything important going on. The romans did the same thing, gladiators in the arena, distracting the citizens from the crumbling of the roman empire.

This idea that something might be wrong with us becuase we dont watch a sport everyone else does is just plain stupid, Maybe someday we will stop enabling the insanity that gives a football player more disposable income than the cop who has to arrest him on drug and drunken driving charges.
