"The Beautiful Game"

So I know I've been a little hard on the so called "beautiful game" on this blog, so this morning after my run I decided to give it another chance. I turned my television over to Univision since I don't have ESPN and sat down and watched Mexico play Argentina. It was 1-1 in the first half when I turned the game on, I thought this could be interesting. What I was subjected to was some of most boring television I've ever watched. For over an hour I've watch a bunch of dudes with bad haircuts kick this stupid ball around, I do not see how people can actually find this exciting. This makes two hours of Senate debate on CSPAN look exciting (Argentina just scored, Thank God it's finally over!!). Since (Wait they're still playing! Could someone please explain to me how this dumb overtime they use works?) I started watching the game I had time to walk to the local convience store, take a nap, talk to my girlfriend on the phone, make lunch and take a shower before I saw a goal scored. This sport is awful please give me football, baseball, basketball, nascar, poker, strongman competitions, hot dog eating contests anything but soccer!

We've recently been watching the UFC on Spike. It's pretty good, and there's a kid from Tigard. Oh, and we haven't watched a single World Cup game, save a glance or two a the TV while in a Mexican restaurant. You should be proud, especially considering my family.
