Soccer is the biggest sport in the world, but you'll never get me to understand why. I guess it just comes with being an American. In America, Soccer even takes a back-seat to Hockey, which is behind Football, Baseball, and Basketball.
I'm pretty knowledgeable in most sports when it comes to the top athletes and their accomplishments, but I can probably only name 2 Soccer players. Heck, I know more about Tennis than I do about Soccer.
