Of the many sports I played in life, soccer was one of them. I played forward and goalie for my high school my sophomore year. Needless to say we weren’t any good, but we won a few times (against co-ed teams). Anyways, of all the sports I played soccer and wrestling I had to be in the best shape for to compete. We ran so much in soccer the first two weeks of practice, if I remember correctly I lost 15 pounds. It’s a great game. The problem, I believe, for Americans is we don’t market the game very well, which can be attributed to the fact that I don’t believe the MLS is a solid professional league.

Now, I’ll admit that I haven’t watched much of the World Cup. I would rather watch the U.S. Women’s Open because I’m more interested in golf.
