I hate to admit it, but during the World Cup, I actually watched a couple of games.
Is something wrong with me?
I didn't watch the whole game every time, but if I was surfing through the channels and came across one, I was glued to the set for about half an hour.
The strange thing? I hate soccer.
I've never really had a taste for it.
I played as a child, but hockey was more violent and exciting. I admire the stamina of any man who can run around for 90 minutes without collapsing, so I'll admit it is fascinating on a physical level. However the game is usually so boring that I can't stand to watch it. The only sport more useless on T.V. is Golf. Or Nascar.
Someone has to explain the fascination of this game to me. I'm convinced that the matches I watched were abnormalities. They were only exciting to watch because of the importance of the matches. I don't think I could watch soccer on a regular basis without slipping into a coma.
And even then, I'm in danger of being head-butted by a crazy Frenchman.
