    The only thing more boring than a soccer game is another soccer game. The US could win the World Title of Soccer (whatever that is) and I still wouldn't care.

    :lol: I try to watch soccer but the refs are so anti-American it's ridiculous. In fact, it's so ridiculous that I don't end up watching it much of the time. The game in Mexico was a prime example.

    I'd rather have my nuts in a vice than to have to sit through and watch a soccer game.
