Why I Can't Watch Soccer. Its UnAmerican

You're so full of schist, your eyes are speckled and layered.  S13

I don't care for it because it doesn't excite me at all.  I'm a veteran, who has been doing Real Things that require risk.  You know, things like being shot at, while shooting back.  Things like jumping out of airplanes.  You know, things that are REALLY exciting, put our life in danger, and cause the adrenaline to flow.  Those type of things.  

This is why most vets like me, tend to be critical of civilians, because they tend to think and act like pussies.  We're part of a group that neither you, or Bill, or millions of others, will ever gain admittance.  It has nothing to do with my politics, rather my idea of manliness.  

For instance, if you are in a public place and hear shooting, do you run to get away from it, or do you run toward the danger in order to recon the situation?

Like I posted earlier, we did think of it first. As all immigrants came to America, they brought their love for soccer with them. We produced a nation that played the game very well, and had some of the greatest players in the world. Baseball was artificially elevated to a national sport, and soccer was attacked to make the suppliers to baseball more money. It has taken until today for the love of the game to be allowed to flourish.

Fake news has always been dangerous.

The thing is, it is not an either/or choice. I love both sports, and have played and coached many sports. What I will not do is hate one sport and attack it every chance I get.

No we didn't, that's just anti intellectual "Americans created the world"pr nonsense. It was created elsewhere way before this state was created.

It came here with our forebears. It was as popular here as elsewhere in the world. Perhaps it was invented by Alley Oop. I don't know which cave man started kicking something first for fun. He had to hold his spear in his hands to guard against giant varmints, which may be why the game let his hands be free. Wikipedia said it was played 3,000 years ago. It was definitely here before baseball and basketball and pigskin football. Was it the Aztecs or the Incas that kicked human heads? It was also one city against another with the game being played by the entire population against the other.

No it wasn't. Soccer wasn't remotely popular in the USA before 1980. Grow up and realize the world sometimes does things w/o Uncle Sam getting a sacrifice from them.

Yeah, it was.

Quote:...[1830-1920] soccer was in a much better position in the United States than it has been in more recent decades. As a result of the waves of immigration from Europe of the 19th century, it still was a major sport in the United States.
