I’ve been trying to figure out why the World Cup and Soccer in general gets no love in the U.S. It’s not the lack of scoring, which many people have hung their hats on, it’s the fact that these guys are the biggest bunch of pussies in sports. Every chance they get they’re writhing around on the ground, getting carted off on stretchers with their arms dangling (only to slink out of the locker area at full-strength moments later), and complaining nearly constantly. THAT’S the boring part.Soccer takes the worst parts of the other major sports and condenses them into a nice bundle. From an athletic perspective some of these guys are at or near the top of any list, it just that this constant “pussitude” doesn’t play in the states.
Here’s an average game summed up in animated GIF format.
