    You mean kickball? Nothing more riveting than a tie or 1-0 kickball game.

    I actually enjoy soccer. Playing more than watching. World Cup tournament is really fun, but alas, USA failed to qualify.

    Any fans of prissy men being paid hundreds of millions to roll around on the ground and pretend their leg has been shattered in 46 places after they trip over a blade of grass?

    No bruh....

    So is Brazil, Columbia and a few others. I root against those countries knowing how they nut up when they lose and threaten to kill people over it, lol.

    I must admit a guilty pleasure..... please don't judge me...

    When I read that soccer fans run out onto a field and assault, lynch, kill, decapitate, or otherwise act like total fvcking idiots over a soccer match..... I do laugh a little.

    My favorites were--- Pablo Escobar killing a player that got them booted from the world cup for scoring a goal on their own team.
    The Brazilians that were so pissed at the refs for a sh!tty call that they cut off. The poor refs had their heads stuck on a pike at midfield.
    Saddam hussein taking his soccer team and putting them in cells that were too short to stand up in and too narrow to lie down in.

    Anyone that resorts to that sort of violence is fvcked up and deserves to be mocked.

    Every four years during the World Cup. Even then I only watch about 4 games. And during those games I have to switch the channel to real sports for a while. So...no, I’m not a soccer fan

    I always find this thinking funny. If you think every game is 1-0, not much I can say, lol.

    Football - more commercials than actual game time.
    Baseball - strikeout 10x a game and hit a homerum and a bunch of weak flyouts
    Hockey - exciting but can't follow the puck
    NBA - 60 free throws a game

    Yep, those are WAY more exciting.

    Champions League Soccer is extremely exciting...especially the 2nd leg

    World cup and Olympics is about all you'll get out of me. I may go to a FC Dallas game once a year bc I get free tickets or something.

    Soccer was invented by European ladies to keep themselves busy while their husbands did the cooking.

    Honestly though, I've never understood people that can watch football, baseball, golf, nascar, etc. on tv and then say soccer is boring. Makes zero sense.

    Tell you something I loved during the Olympics...Rugby 7's. That was some exciting tv.

    You can try all you want to sell me on kickball, but I ain't buying. Watching the grass grow is more entertaining than kickball.

    My comment was tongue in cheek, but I kind of agree. If you were to objectively list what makes a sport good TV, American favorites would probably be down on the list. I'll watch the Saturday soccer games on NBC, but don't follow the teams or leagues in general.

    I rarely watch football games without a DVR delay. The typical college game being 4+ hours is a beating as well. Remove the emotional investment and a typical college or NFL game is really just background noise in my house.
