I hear the Intrinsicites out there screaming, “No!, Tell me it’s not true!”
I know a vast number of you have hung on every phrase I’ve uttered about soccer over the years. Things like “Soccer is the vampire sport that is sucking the lifeblood out of American sports”, “Soccer sucks”, and “There’s more action in a chess match”.
But I’ve seen the light. I get it. Soccer is action packed. Soccer has many ways to score. Soccer players are very skilled.
The way I discovered this was while accidentally watching it tonight on ESPN.
Soccer is an awesome sport if you can condense all the highlights of a game into one minute.
This is me admitting I was wrong.
