Like most Americans, I grew up not understanding the big deal about Soccer. The world’s most popular sport and most Americans could not care less. 90 minute games that end with a score of 0-0? Give me some Basketball.
There’s that old saying, if one person doesn’t like you, it’s a disagreement. If everyone doesn’t like you, then there’s probably something wrong with you.
So I guess this logic can be used in reverse, maybe the sport that everyone loves has something to it, and us Americans need to see the light.
Just a lovely piece on why guys like me love this game that everyone says is so beautiful.
