That famous soccer player, will he bring attention to soccer

Post by jim »

Beckem or whatever his name is, do you think people will start paying attention?

I don't. In fact, I'm ever stronger in my resolve to completely ignore the sport.

Too bad, you're missing out(not because of Beckham or MLS).

Only if they bring in other celebrity players, and actively promote the sport. Even then, it'll take decades.

Just saw Alexi Lalas on PTI talking about the signing. Very smooth talker. I think it's cool. Why not? It'll help.

Not interested in the least and I'm already sick of hearing about them. I watch some of the World Cup games, but that's about it. I find most soccer games achingly boring........(no offense to soccer fans, I played it and I loved it, but to watch these games is like watching paint dry.)

Soccer's dull, IMO. More fun to play than watch.

2. NASCAR
3. MLB
4. NBA
5. PGA
6. NHL
7. AFL
8. Poker
9. Rock, Paper, Scissors

I honestly don't get it. I grew up at a time when there were no youth soccer teams, so maybe you had to play? But watching it, well like I said I just don't get it.

The only thing I know about soccer is that alot of my best players coaching were also soccer players, and balancing that act out got tiresome.
