I love the World Cup because it’s a time where America finally starts paying attention to soccer. (Neilson just released a report that the World Cup has reached one-third of all U.S. TV viewers) (Also, the USA– Ghana match drew the highest U.S. Soccer Audience ever.)
Apparently John Cleese would agree. More on that in a second.
I was just in the backyard practicing soccer with my 12-year-old, Ashley. Tonight we go to soccer practice together. I love it. It’s a great sport that produces some amazing athletes. In one pro soccer game the average midfielder runs 5 to 7 miles. These guys are studs!
Then there’s football.
Rather than me sharing my two cents… I’ll just turn it over to John Cleese. He sums it up well.
Hilarious! (CLICK HERE if you don’t see the embedded video above)
ht to David R. Smith- football fan. Sigh!
