Hating Soccer is just another reason why the world hates us.

Oh, jeez. What's so funny is that you pro-soccer types have absolutely no sense of humor about how god-awful boring your sport is. Americans will never like soccer. End of story, in spite of occasional efforts by the media telling us how great it is and how everyone else in the world loves it. The rest of the world plays soccer b/c they are too dirt poor to play a sport that requires equipment, as opposed to soccer, in which all one needs is something to kick around, like an empty milk jug or a severed head. In this country, little kids play soccer until they develop enough physical ability and coordination to do more than run around in Brownian motion after a rolling ball.

PS Where did you hear anyone say they hated the US b/c we hate soccer?
