So I've been watching a lot of the world cup lately and I have to admit, I'm kind of liking it. That game the other day when Landon Donavon won it in the 91st minute was amazing. I was at work and I'm pretty sure no one was doing actual work for at lest 10 minutes or so. All that mattered was that soccer game, it was awesome!
But here is the deal, there are still things I hate about soccer. And it stems from the fact that it seems that the don't want anyone to feel bad about losing so they make it hard to lose. How many games have ended in 0-0 ties this world cup? Several, and that's an exact number! Or as I was watching it today the showed the Spanish national team walking in and the said and I quote "they entered the tournament as co-favorites" Listen, either you are the favorite or you are not. None of this Co favorite crap. Here in America we don't share our favorites, and we don't end in ties. We play extra innings until someone can score even if we go to 20. Or tennis games that can go 9 plus hours! We play sudden death overtime, ya that's right next one to score wins! sure if the 15 minutes are up and its a regular season game it ends in a tie but technically its at the end of "sudden death" so its not really a tie cause both teams are dead.......suddenly. AND that's the only way we allow ties here, and that's if both parties are dead! Only excuse!
So come on soccer, get with the times. Communism is dead and winning is in.
