World Cup Soccer Anyone Even Care

So I figured someone would have started a thread but I guess most people are like me and don't really give a sh!t about soccer.

Women are up by 1

I tend to side with Jim Rome about soccer.

Re: World Cup Soccer Anyone Even Care

I care...because I get paid the big bucks to care

But I know not many others here do. I'm a huge tennis fan but I know I'm in the minority so I'm selective about starting posts related to it

Anyhow, USA has been sensational these last two days. And Abby Wambach has been the anti-Lebron. Totally clutch

I've been following it off and on and I think it's awesome that they're in the final. I only saw a little bit of a one game, and it happened to be Sunday against Brazil when the refs made that ridiculous call (but I tend to think the majority of soccer calls are stupid because the rules really need to be updated IMO) and it surprised me how mad I got.

Abby Wambach has been pretty amazing to watch. She's been a regular guest on Elliot In The Morning for a few years now and she always comes across as a cool person so it's nice to see her doing so well.

My wife plays tennis and likes to watch the big matches. I actually like watching the matches but don't tell my wife because she thinks I only do so for her.

Re: World Cup Soccer Anyone Even Care

Thank you, I was thinking of starting this thread.

I've been riveted from the beginning. In fact, I followed the qualifiers. Wambach is of course too cool for school. But I've been more impressed by the emergence of Morgan and Rapinoe. Chaney has been surprisingly productive, too.

That Brazil game might be the best game that I have ever seen. Going back to the Korea game, though, you could tell that this team had something going on. I was worried after the Mexico loss in the qualifiers but the girls have really picked it up when it counts.

The ladies had better improve in terms of midfield possession against Japan, though.

Exactly. I cannot wrap my brain around the video game thing. Anyway, I've been loving these games. Can't wait until Sunday's match! Wambach is so clutch (Florida Gator BTW), and who doesn't love Hope Solo?

She's my least favorite for the way that she threw others under the bus in 2007.

Re: World Cup Soccer Anyone Even Care

I'm still trying to figure out if I think Hope Solo is attractive or not. She's definitely not ugly, and usually the first thing I notice about a woman (from the neck up at least) is her eyes and Hope's aren't too shabby, but I'm just not sure. And really, honestly, that's what women's sports come down to for me...
