Just because you can diss soccer as not a real sport, doesn’t mean you should…

I totally swiped this from a sports post & comment over at Jesus Creed, but it was worth it. Soccer just hasn’t made it big in the US the way it has in the rest of the world. As a former, competent, 10 year-old-halfback for the Richland Wildcats, I applauded the news that the MLS will finally be coming to one of our nation’s legit soccer towns. For those of you who laugh at the idea of putting it alongside the NFL, NBA of MLB, check out this video of fans chanting in France. When’s the last time the crowd got this fired-up at Qwest Field?
