I've never understood why more of America doesn't like soccer. Many of us played as kids. AYSO. I played for eight years, including two years in high school. I love watching it and wish I was still physically able to play. I don't much care for most other sports, but I enjoy watching soccer, hockey, and motocross.It's funny to me.... a country that really doesn't give a flip about soccer is beating up on teams from counties that LIVE THE SPORT.

Every community Sports Org we lived in supports soccer and I coached in Severna Park Green Hornets soccer for 12 years and most of the kids that played, that were athletes, played other sports year round. The ones that weren't, typically lost interest after a year or two...they may be fans today though! There really weren't many whose fav sport was soccer though. The ones that we thought were going to fall in love with the sport often fell for Lax instead....LOL
I think that for many as they got older, club soccer kept them in shape for their other favorite Middle school or High school sport.
You are right Ed, however this is football. Surprises and shocks.It's funny to me.... a country that really doesn't give a flip about soccer is beating up on teams from counties that LIVE THE SPORT.
