How can someone say Ice hockey is exciting and Soccer boring, when the scores usually are roughly the same by the end (unlike Basketball in which each team can rack up a hundred points)? The only edge you could possibly give hockey is that there’s more likely to be a violent brawl that breaks out, and then what does that say about yourself?
Anyway, soccer is great. I think Americans can’t get into it, because it’s the one sport Americans really suck at. If the US team started reaching the semi-finals then everyone in the country would suddenly become a huge soccer fan.
