After all of the hullabaloo, who here still thinks soccer/futbol is an absolute bore?

I can't really stomach watching soccer. There's just not enough scoring for me. If I watch a 90 minute sporting event that ends in a 0-0 tie I feel like I've wasted my time. I know a lot of people have strong feelings about the game, but it's just not my cup of tea.

I feel the same way about golf, cricket, and NASCAR. I think if I understood racing more, I might appreciate the subtleties of a race. I've played soccer my entire life, so I understand it as a sport, and appreciate a well-played match, even if no goals are scored.

@Ticomaya,
Hi Ticomaya, long time no see! Yes, every time there is an attack, you can feel the excitement. I think the rarity of goals makes each one so much more dramatic.

I think of it as hockey -- just slower, on grass, and with more players.

@George,
On Abuzz, you were called soccergeorge. You just may be a bit biased.
