I think I’m really beginning to like professional soccer. I used to think it was boring because scoring was rare and shots on goal was pretty scarce, but I’ve begun to appreciate the skills needed to run around for 90 minutes and execute precision passes and shots. It’s not that bad of a sport…ha. But I think what I like most is not having any commercials interrupt my viewing. There are no timeouts in soccer (not that I know of) so it’s two straight 45 minute halves…that’s insane, but it keeps me glued. I think I shall try to follow more foreign and domestic soccer.
And kudos to Japan. I think they needed the morale boost the most with all that the country has been going through lately.
