Soccer vs. Football

Some differing points of view, thanks to YouTube:

First, John Cleese with the typical “rest-of-the-world”  take on American Football vs. Soccer

Second, Jim Rome with multiple explanations of why Americans will never consider Soccer as a major sport worthy of any sane person’s attention.

What is my view, you ask?  Personally, I am a typical American.  I would rather watch paint dry than watch soccer.  So, I heartily endorse Jim Rome’s arguments.  I also am quite disappointed in John Cleese.  He has lived in the United States for decades.  One would think that should be sufficient time to see the light.   😆

Honestly, nil – nil?  *snore*

    John Cleese talks about the game, and he’s right. Jim Rome talks about peripherals.

    I’m not especially interested in either game, but American football is ridiculous, and soccer makes sense.
