    Columbus, Ohio has a professional soccer team. A rich lady donated 200 acres in Hilliard, Ohio for the sole purpose of soccer fields for children. Soccer games are a big deal in Hilliard because the cops stop traffic to let the soccer players in and out which is more than a nuisance. I still don't know what a Hat Trick is but hear the term on TV.

    Well yes, but it's the "World Cup" not "Championship".

    A nice person on another forum lives and was born in North Portugal and deep into soccer. She is Basque and when North Portugal fought South Portugal, North Portugal won which gave her dreams of winning the World Cup. I can only hope that winning soccer team does not do to the World Cup what the winning hockey team did to the Stanley Cup. The Stanley Cup has been shit in and pissed in, drank liquor out of and lost in a creek but found. Ice Hockey is not a violent sport.

    It is just boring. I donĀ“t remember when I played ball the last time. Maybe with my retarded classmate 20 years ago.

    A "hat trick" is when a player scores three goals in a game.

    The term derives from hockey. Decades ago, when a hockey player scored three times in one game, the men in the crowd would throw their hats onto the ice as a sign of celebration and reverence towards the player who scored three goals.

    Soccer is growing in the US. Professional soccer (MLS) already surpassed the NBA and NHL in average attendance. In the US soccer doesn't get the best athletes, but is still doing well enough. I don't/haven't watched any of the World Cup matches, but then I didn't watch any Stanley Cup games or NBA finals.
