Never Ever

Anybody else wondering why they are making a big deal about David Beckham? Soccer has been the talk of numerous articles about how it's an up and coming sport with today's youth. Isn't every sport up and coming with today's youth? I don't care who the United States brings in to play soccer here but I know that it will never be more than something people watch once every 4 years

I can tell you why soccer is played by so many youth athletes these days. The parents can buy all the equipment needed for $25. Put a piece of plastic on your shins, a pair of the cheapest pair of spikes on your foot that doesn't allow your kid to move either of his feet and the jerseys are t-shirts. Not to mention, it's a great place for parents to go check out other parents when their marriage isn't going great. The mom might even become one of those that shows up on a porn site called "Soccer Moms".

This is also one of few sports that several sports fans don't know the rules. It would be like going to watch a baseball game and not knowing what a ball or strike was. I know there are some people at baseball games that really don't know that concept but that's also why it's one event straight guys like attending with other guys.

You can try to show this sport on TV more to attract more kids but there is one very large problem.....They never stop play! In today's entertainment, there are going to be 3 hours of commercials for every sporting event so what happens when they go to commercial and the one goal that has been scored the entire season doesn't get shown live? Everybody that thought about watching the sport is now so pissed off at the world that they attend a game and start one of those classic soccer brawls where there are lead pipes being heaved from section to section.

I have thought of only one way soccer could make it in this country and that's not to have David Beckham on the field but rather have his wife "Posh Spice" sing "Wannabe" at the 50 fuckin yard line.

If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends,Make it last forever friendship never ends,If you wanna be my lover, you have got to give,Taking is too easy, but that's the way it is.

Great call Dogg. By the way, hasn't soccer (which, by the way, pisses off all Europeans that we call it that) been the "up and coming sport" among youths for like 15 years? You know why soccer can't last as a legit sport? Because at some point in your life you realize how stupid it is to run around and chase a ball all day. Then you go and play a sport that requires a little bit more skill. Or stop running all together and just sit down, have a beer, and judge those that play the sport. You know, something like that.
