MOST COMMENTED

"I just told someone, I never watched soccer — or football — until the World Cup, and I fell in love with it. I can’t wait to watch the next game, the next match. I can’t wait to watch whenever they come on again….It’s so exciting, just them racing up the field and just trying to attempt a shot. That’s exciting to me. I’m pulling for the USA to win their next match, so we’ll see…"

-- Another soccer convert, 2014 NBA MVP Kevin Durant, who named Colombia, Brazil and Argentina with Lionel Messi, as his other favorite teams. (Washington Post)

    Thanks Kevin. You have realized what most soccer fans have known for years. It is not necessarily the final score but rather the process. It is exciting watching teams rush up the field even if they shot goes wide or the ball gets stolen. For years American fans and sports announcers have called soccer boring because a game is 1-0. But Baseball games and hockey games have been 1-0 for years and people called them great defensive battles or pitching duels. Football is 7-0 frequently. The problem is they never played the game and did not understand what went into the process. But also scores are all over the place these days. They can be 1-0 or 4-0 which would be 28-0 in American Football.
