Having grown up in a very small, country town, I had never really paid any attention to Soccer. No one played soccer where I was from. It wasn’t a school sport, and there wasn’t even a league that kids could join to play. I was never interested in watching the game & really didn’t understand how people could watch such a “boring” sport. That all changed when I was in college in California and became friends with some people from Greece who loved to watch direct tv international packages in california. They could not understand my lack of interest in their absolute favorite sport. After watching the World Cup with them, I realized how enjoyable soccer was to watch, once you really got into it.
To this day, four years later, I still enjoy watching soccer on TV. Watching a good soccer game at a sports bar, full of other soccer fans is one of the most exciting times in sports to me. With so many people that are so passionate and fanatic about soccer, it’s hard to not get excited about what is going on. The atmosphere around the sport is like no other. I recently started watching the 2010 World Cup on my satellite TV and I still enjoy it today just as much as I did with my fanatic friends four years ago.
