You don't get soccer, Buz?? Riots in the stands that make them fall and kill lots of people. Getting drunk before the match, and finding people wearing the opposing jerseys and beating the ***** out of em. Chasing a referee that made a bad call, and running his car off a cliff. What's not to like??

It's well known that Micheal Schumacher is a rabid Harley fan, and he could probably walk down 5th avenue in New York and nobody would care. Not many Euros are all that popular here.

Are you talking about soccer or a warm, summer night in Chicago?



I guess when every game ends 0-0, you've got to fight about something.

So I wasn't the only one who really wanted to go and waited until the last minute to not get a ticket!



They sold out last Friday. The gal at the Lugana Seca ticket office said it's the first time it's ever happened. I'm sure she meant for a motorcycle race. Anyway, it shocked me. There's like a square mile of dirt to sit on and they can't squeeze a few thousand more in?

OK. This is simple. Offsides means the offense kicks the ball past the opposing teams last defender on the opposing teams side when the kicker was past the halfway line... OK, when the offense kicks the ball past the last defender, except the goalie, on the opposing teams half of the field and can score easily, but isn't supposed to because...OK, OK, no, I got it...when the defense is defending their goal and an offensive player kicks the ball past the last defender in the back third of the field by about 10 feet. It may not be 10 feet. I think it's when the linesman is perpendicular to the last defender and sees the ball being kicked over his head to the fast break guy...They should allow fast breaks in soccer.

First off... no game end 0-0, they end nil-nil. Some type of Euro-snobery.



Second, unless I've missed some episode of world wildest police videos, there hasn't been a good riot in Chi-town for afew years. Allthough I haven't heard about any of Longrides friday night adventures.

Its 3 meters, and they should allow full contact. Body checks, takedowns, style point for causing injury, then they'd have a game

I heard Paris Hilton isn't very big in Italy. She is bigger than soccer here in the US.

Default Soccer is like baseball in a way

It's more fun to play then watch. Football, hockey and basketball all are better to watch than soccer.
