I tried watching some of the game today and I must say that soccer has got to be the most boring sport to watch.

I would rather watch soccer then baseball.

Even more boring than golf? Like any sport, it is more fun to play it than it is to watch it, well except maybe for boxing.

Or the crap they are still trying to call American football (aka the NFL) - is it this season when the quarterbacks will get to wear flags so they don't get hit?

...football? ...I think multi-point, collision-activated airbags are the answer
...then an auto-distress call to OnStar
..."owee owee!"

now that is funny...so true. quarterbacks today are the biggest wimps on the field. all the rule changes to protect the pretty boys of the team is ruining the game.
