Bad Officiating, Blown Calls, Flopping, Low Scoring And That Damn Bzzzzing….My Relationship With Soccer Has Officially Ended.

July 2, 2010 | 1 Comment » | Topics: Sports |

soccer fail

I tried to give it a chance to see what all the hype was all about. See what the rest of the world was so keen on and tried to let me bias for high paced, high scoring American sports take a back seat to technique, form and finesse, but after seeing one too many blown calls, a great deal of acting(flopping), a plethora of 90 minutes games with 1-0 results, and that god damn vuvuzela, I’m offically bowing out of soccer. However I will leave it on a good note and send it away with a video of the most enjoyable part of soccer…GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL!
