Soccer is played by millions an millions of people. Most countries love it. It is also becoming one of the best most beloved sports in America. Everywhere you go people watch soccer, bars, living rooms and at hotels. It will soon be the most popular sport even more than the NFL.
The best and probably most popular soccer team in America is the Columbus Crew, also known as the Cbus Crew. They have a world famous mascot call Crew Cat who is very popular and very recognizable. The reality of the situation is if mores and more people become watch soccer in America the sport will become more and more popular.
Columbus Crew for life! Yeah homeys!
Heres how hardcore the fans are. Soccer rules!!!!!!!!

What am I suppose to argue with here? I believe soccer is the best sport in the world. However soccer is not as not a popular here in America as say college football. With the tradition that college football has it will be very hard for soccer to come close to it in popularity.
Of course we need to talk about the history of college football. And why not start with the man who was there in the beginning... Joe Paterno.
Joe is so old and out of touch with whats going on today in today's game t's not even funny...
Ok it's a little funny!

Yo don't even understand where I'm comin' from Hudson. Have you ever seen a guy with only one arm or even no arms, play college football? Exactly, son! I knew I kid from cross town who only had one arm and he was a soccer player and was pretty good. Not great, but pretty good. They just wouldn't let him take throw-ins.
The reality of the situation is that soccer is king. Most people who don't like it only hate it because they aren't sophisticated enough to appreciate it.
Soccer is like a fine champagne. The NFL is like sparkling wine. Soccer is like diamonds and strawberries. The NFL is hot dogs and Kit-Kats.
The Columbus Crew are the top o' the line when it comes to the brand of champagne that you will be purchasing. Ever wonder why Cincinnati and Cleveland have NFL teams, but Columbus has an MLS team. Only Columbus is refined and cultrued enought for the MLS to grant them a soccer franchise.
For those of you that want to hate, please hate, but I don't hate you. Soccer loves everybody and your neighbor too.
Diamonds and Strawberries, son!

What does someone with no arms have to do with how great or popular soccer is?? People with disabilities play sorts of sports.
???The reality of the situation is that soccer is king. Most people who don't like it only hate it because they aren't sophisticated enough to appreciate it.???
It???s idiotic statements like this that people read and thing you are being serious that give soccer fans a bad rap. Do I think soccer is more sophisticated than the average person gives it credit for??? Yes. Do I think soccer is more sophisticated the football??? No. Why do I feel like Sunil Gulati??? Because I???m answering my own questions.
Your argument is like arguing with a child. You are saying the first thing that comes to mind. You are just spewing verbal diarrhea. Speaking of diarrhea???
I'm glad he's not my football coach. He's no "Penn State Playa" like you.

I don't get diarrhea. My diet consists of diamonds and strawberries. I crap out gold nuggets and rainbows. Maybe you should cut back on all of the hot dogs and Kit-Kats you eatin.
Soccer will always be the most popular sport. It requires skill and tactics and speed. Much in the same way it requires those very same things to be mayor of Columbus, Ohio. Columbus Crew will eventualy become the New York Yankees of soccer in America and eventually all franchizes in the America will be economically silly puty compared to the Cbus Crew. You can try to defeat my arguments Hudson, but you don't know how a true playa plays.

I could quote figures and ramble off stats on why college football is more popular then soccer but I know it will be too complex for you.
So I???ll break it down like this???
Say you, the pimp you are, have two ladies out one night. Both are attractive and both are hard working. Now let???s say one of your ladies has ???more to offer??? then other, if you get what I???m saying. Which one of these ladies would be more profitable to a playa such as yourself? I believe it would be the lady who is a little top heavy. We???ll call her college football. Now there???s nothing wrong with girl number 2, I mean she will get you where you need to go but the ride will be a little darker because the headlights aren???t as big. We???ll call her soccer.
Both are good at what they do. Both make you money. Both are enjoyed by all types of people. It???s just college football has more to offer then soccer right now. College football is what most guys are looking for right now. Who knows maybe in a couple years, after some ???growing pains??? soccer will catch up to college football.
