My 3 year son plays soccer right now b/c he's a fireball and needs something to burn his energy. I hope that he gravitates to football, baseball or basketball.

Because I like soccer, just not the poser/try-hard culture that has spawned from Seattle, Portland, etc. If USA was in the field, I'd watch even though I know they would embarrass us and fail to get out of the group stage.

Now that obligation is lifted, and I'll be able to watch some real games.

There's no obligation. Soccer is gay. It's a way to wear out your kid, nothing more.

I enjoy the EPL.

At least they have the best players. I'll give you that much.

Seriously though, I used to feel the same way about soccer as you until my son started playing. We learned about the different leagues/teams/rules. etc together and now I watch more soccer than football/basketball combined.

Dude, when you've got to follow other nations' leagues to see the best it's lame af. Sorry, it just is. College sports are bigger than professional soccer here. If he likes it, so be it... but I hope not.

Nah, I enjoy good European and South American soccer. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy basketball and football too, but learning about soccer opened up an entirely new world of leagues and teams. Just because they don't happen to be American leagues and teams says more about how far we have to go than anything else, IMO.

There are 2 kinds of countries in the world: those who care about soccer, and those who have landed on the moon...
