Why Soccer is # 1
Like most other guys before me, I like sports. Growing up I’ve gone through different phases. I’ve participated in and/or watched baseball, soccer, basketball, tennis, football and hockey. However, out of all those sports, the one I’ve been a fan of most consistently is soccer.
I have blurry memories of me watching the 1994 World Cup 18 years ago. From that time until now, soccer has been my favorite sport to watch.
It’s hard being a soccer fan when you live in the USA. I remember once searching for an important soccer match on all the sports channels I get. I figured it would be broadcast on ESPN. But I didn’t find it. Instead, they were showing bowling or golf. I really can’t remember. The point is that to Americans, almost anything is more important than soccer.
