Soccer bores me.
I really am.
I want to like it, really. I get the appeal, the excitement, the feeling it could go any way at any moment. I understand the athleticism involved in it and am very impressed at the precision required.
Unfortunately, it's like baseball in that regard.
Bloody boring. For most of it, it's just men running back and forth over a big field.
I know, I know, basketball is much the same. Except it's way smaller, the ball moves around more and there is a shot-clock limiting the amount of time one can retain possession of the ball and attempt to score. So it contains more instant gratification and moves at a faster pace.
So, while I'm shockingly more up-to-date on the World Cup and have actually watched several games with my husband, and actually knew more about WC than the NBA draft (which makes me feel all sorts of wrong), I am terribly bored by it all.
Sorry. I want to like it. I know it's the biggest international sport and all. But. . . yawn.
