Default Re: World Cup > NBA Finals(even in America)

No its not, its so overrated compared to basketball, in Europe its just group pressure/culture causing you to like soccer, but once you see how good basketball is you forget soccer. I never understood why people like soccer anyways, a soccer game is just a bunch of short guys running around flopping, jogging, passing and chasing a ball for an entire game back n forth with an occasional goal per game (which most often happened out of pure luck/randomness). Im even surprised im able to think that way as a euro...

May thee USA forever think basketball>soccer, you dudes have excellent taste in sports.

Soccer is an amazing sport. World Cup has no comparison.

I have to agree on soccer being shoved on us way too much in Europe, as pretty much the only sport that matters. It's disturbing how in certain countries you're not even considered socially apt if you're a male and you're not into soccer.
They call it "the king of sports". Should be more like "der Fuhrer of sports". Take a typical European sports newspaper and its whole front page is typically going to involve soccer, soccer, soccer and more soccer. American football is the most popular sport in the US and it's not anywhere near as shoved on Americans' throats as soccer here.
