    Not to be too nationalistic…

    But this appears to be more interesting than “footie,” in which one bloke does nothing with numerous other blokes looking on.

    I never, ever had any outward aversion to soccer until I was in a bar watching the American women won the world cup. After several hours of nothing, punctuated by someone taking her shirt of, a guy said, “That’s the best soccer game I have ever seen.”

    I decided at that point I must not get it. Because I watched the whole thing. And nothing happened.

    We need to get hurling over here. *THAT* is a sport that you’d think would have made it big in America.Report

    I watched a cricket game on TV on a lazy Saturday when I was visiting Scotland, and it was every bit as much nothing as soccer with the added bonus of an incomprehensible scoring system. And then they stopped in the middle to finish the game the next day! An Australian explained to me years later that cricket was not a complicated sport; it was actually a very, very simple drinking game.Report
