too bad the world cup makes soccer popular for only one month every four years in the good ol’ us of a. now i can’t be too certain, but this just might be why i am willing to wake myself up extra early and glue myself to espn.

i love to watch these striking young men strut their stuff on the field.

…oh, and they’re pretty good at soccer too.

if this isn’t incentive to move to europe, i dont know what is.
