Soccer is without a doubt the most popular sport on the planet, but Americans will never be nationally enthralled with the beautiful game. It isn’t because the other major market sports take all the best athletes; the disinterest stems from nonsense like this.
This corner kick set piece is courtesy of a Czech soccer club. I can’t knock them for trying to implement a little trickery into the game plan, but is this really the best you could come up with?
Odds are they’ve got this clown drawing up the plays on the sidelines.
Don’t get me wrong, there’s plenty of trick plays in real football, but they actually work and have awesomely patriotic names.
Anyone remember the 2007 Fiesta Bowl?
Statue of Liberty for the win.
If I’m watching a sporting event, I want to see blood and guts. Athletes are our modern day gladiators, and I’m 87% sure that the NFL season is the only reason we haven’t had a second civil war.
If I wanted to see 90 minutes of Spanish soap-operas, I’d watch Telemundo. Until that time, I’m fine satisfying all my “fútbol” needs via NFL Redzone.
