Cant imagine how soccer is getting so much traction. Is it the media hype? Lack of much going on in regular American sports? Or is it the newest hipster trend? Cause nothing is more hipster than doing something that wont stick, you know doing it ironically.

If baseball is boring to some, and lets face it most of the time the game is BOOOORING, soccer is its Uber-boring sibling.

And for American women to now gush over the players, whom across their leagues are some of the most misogynistic of athletes...well...I dont know what to say. You think American athletes use women? Take a cold hard look at soccer pros 'round the world. Biting (other male players) is the least of their offenses.
