Why Americans Don't Get Soccer

Just to lighten up the mood a little, here's a funny piece I found on the net. If you follow football, or what is known in the U.S. as soccer, hopefully, you'll find this entertaining too. This is humour in good vein. Hopefully, it'll be consumed in that spirit!

An interesting take! Wonder what a Michael Phelps or even a Michael Jordan would have to say about this... Also, why would Beckham want to join 'hands' with a 'foot challenged' nation, hehe

American lovingly refer to soccer players as 'foot fairies'! They make magic with their feet; ...wonder if that means they 'can't' use their hands...

The analogy was kinda lame I thought :P

I guess you haven't excelled at football then? :-)

fun and intersting but the reasoning is a bit forced...

Razz said...

Me? I love football! Just thought the correlation made in the article was nonsensical.

Saadia said...

Nonsensical, hence funny! No?

Razz said...

Not so much :)
