Orvilla Bedinbacher said...

I never care

discoflux said...

I've actually gotten pretty into soccer now. Plus Houston has a really good team. Time for me to start going to games!

Nosey Wosey said...

Never have, never will. Carry on witch ya bad selves, all who do.

sandybrook said...

Orlando has a new soccer team they signed a guy named Kaka yesterday a really big deal apparently. But I have a problem with naming someone something bebehs do.

Violet said...

Oh the fun in this house starts again in August. Louis is probably leaving Liverpool, Moyles was sacked by Man Utd. It's an open playing field this year people. You're all invited round for beer and crisps every Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

LottaColada said...

Fuck that, there were some amazing saves in yesterday's game! ...Says the girl who swore she wasn't going to watch it.

Scarlett Drawl said...

If it's not booze, cars, men, or money I just don't care.

Groggy said...

Not in my house, either. Don't care about soccer now, won't care about it four years from now.

sandybrook said...

Ill think aboot that Violet...they show all the English League games on Tv here now...just cant see being drunk at 8am.

TalksTooMuch said...

Book Club stuff! Asking for book and or movie suggestions for the next meet, which is July 29. Clicky on my profile! Ty. As you were.

FTR, I never cared about soccer

sifichick said...

I have cousins who've played professionally. One of them was in the Jr Olympics. Football (soccer) is big in our family.

I frankly can't be arsed about it though.

Omar Little said...

I'm ready for football season!

Tillie said...

I'm ready for the Tour de France!!!

califblondy said...

I agree Enty, I care only during championships of most sports except American football. I buy the DirectTV football ticket and watch as many games as possible.

Tina Mallette said...

The Dutchies are still in, so I'm still in.

I watch Toronto FC games on the TV occasionally.

Tina Mallette said...

I have friends who watch Formula 1 racing early Sunday mornings, the price you pay for being fans of European athletes

Violet said...

It'll be salt and vinegar flavour crisps Sandy. We go the whole hog when we have guests.

jack ducky said...

Nope. Next year is the women's World Cup and I'll care about that a hell of a lot more than I did this years World Cup.

crila16 said...

Never cared about it now.

Wee S said...

But Van Gaal is coming to OT so yay for me and mine. Happy days again. You're a scouser, right?

Pip said...

I only know that soccer is in the Olympics because of Mia Hamm taking off her shirt after winning.

Essie said...

This is a Gunner house through and through

Gayeld said...

More like 'till the twelfth of never at my house.

astra worthington said...

Uh, I never cared and never will. Playing it in school made me hate it. Team sports are a definite nope for me. Well, except basketball, love to watch it.

Its just U said...

Luis Suarez needs to get got.
And Moyes wasn't the right fit. Good manager, bad time.
Can Not Wait for next season!

Wen said...

I'm on board with Omar - Real FOOTBALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

E A G L E S!!!!!!!!!!!

Kak√° is not really the biggest deal. He has been a former player for a couple of years. He will probably be great in the US (as Villa will be in NY), because your league lacks real quality, but in Europe he has been like a crippled dude.

Now you Americans can watch sports where crackers are just tokens, and the players are criminals in their main percentage (not related to race, just to nationality) like basketball, your football (best named as hand-stewiegriffin, or baseball).

Its just U said...

There are far more people who do actually watch and care about footy than you might think.
USA did fantastic yesterday. I was hoping they'd go all the way to the final, with the Dutch winning, but it wasn't meant to be.
In fairness, the Belgium team all first team players. A lot of champs on that team.
My weekends revolve around footy. I grew up watching it.
GGMU and the reds go marching on on on!

Wee S said...

Was dead impressed with the US footie team but at the end of the day they lacked that end product in the box. Belgium absolutely deserved to go through.

But yeah, 'mon the Netherlands and Man Utd in Aug!

astra worthington said...

We could talk about wrestling, specifically about Kurt Angle returning to TNA! I am unreasonably happy about it, now if only RVD would get on over to TNA then my life would be complete!

Maria W said...

It wasn't Mia it was Brandi Chastain

NaughtyNurse said...

Nope. We love soccer in my house. For those of us who live in the NY/NJ area (Count, I'm talking to you), you really need to hit a NY Red Bulls game. They are a BLAST!

EvieShackles said...

Orlando does have a team... but no one in Orlando really cares. I'll be interested in the next World Cup should the USA win a couple games. Until then... basketball has my cheering section.

hothotheat said...

Not me.........Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1 and Serie A. August to May.

Mary Ann said...

Nope. I love football (both NFL and soccer-type) and will watch it every chance I get. So do two of my three sons. The third doesn't like any sports at all.

Pogue Mahone said...

I didn't care this YR and I won't care in 4 YRS either.

Hits123 said...

Women's World Cup is next year in Canada. Maybe Hope Solo will stay out of prison long enough to participate.

Fora Milan!!!!!!
