For such a big ash net, it’s a wonder that soccer is not a more high scoring affair. I think that’s the predominant hang-up for us Americanos. We like our “football” action packed. We haven’t the patience for the nuances of the pitch.
Interesting that we’ll sit through three hours of shutout baseball, thunderously applauding the defensive gems and unhittable stuff of each respective hurler. But soccer? What was the final? 1-0? Pfft.
Anyway, this dude, Rocky Baptiste, isn’t doing anything to help us, the offensive minded critics, out:
Way to try to boot that one home with authority, Rocko! Worst…miss…ever.
