I used to hate soccer. As I’ve gotten older and watched my kids get into it I’ve grown to love it. I think it’s an incredibly misunderstood sport. Once you begging to understand the degree of difficulty of the game and tactics of actually moving the ball and getting shots on goal it really is like a chess match, especially at the highest levels. To be honest American Soccer IS boring. Mainly because European Soccer (primarily English Premier League) is just so much better. It pains me to make this comparison but EPL vs MLS is like watching Bama/Georgia vs Nebraska/Northwestern. (That really hurt to type…). American Soccer is getting significantly better, especially our National Team, but overall we have a long way to go to equal the Europeans.
