the waning appeal of soccer

As a good liberal, global-minded American progressive I should take an interest in soccer. In fact I have tried to watch it, tried to get excited about it but it just ain't going to happen. Watching people run up and down a huge field for two hours and it could all just end in a draw? I think there is something in the American personality that discards games in which there is no clear winner in the end.

No surprise

There was not a butting of heads. He head-butted his opponent in the chest. While it was a completely violent, inappropriate thing to do, it was not a surprise. Soccer is totally violent, and that includes the fans. And it's getting worse.
