  • North American hockey fans interest in soccer?

    Originally posted by Coog
    Both hockey and soccer are to be regarded as minor sports in the US. As I see it, the sports share some similarities. The objective is to put the puck/ball in a net. The most popular american sports are played in short bursts of action while hockey and soccer are more free flowing games. Both sports also, are relatively low scoring compared to other US sports.

    So naturally I’m curious about if there’s any interest from the American and Canadian hockey crowds in soccer? Seems natural you, if any, would fins some interest in it.
    Since, it is the off season I wanted to see the opinions of posters on USCHO. Please soccer haters stay out. We already know what you think. YWNWA

    You want to know if people on the board like soccer? Or do you want to know if we think hockey and soccer are similar?

    Speaking of soccer, did the last World Soccer thread get nuked? It doesn't seem to exist anymore.

      You ask a question about interest, and yet only want people who like soccer to post....

      which is it?

      I have 1% interest in soccer (maybe catch 5 minutes of a World Cup game). 2% if you include Hope Solo in the soccer discussion (pics required).

          Does have the edge over Solo in that she hasn't openly admitted to being defiled by Vince Vaughn.

            That right there is the Olympic soccer version of Ginger/Mary Ann. The correct answer is obviously yes, but that can never be attained. So I go with Hope. Something about those eyes seal the deal.

              Alex Morgan > Hope Solo.

              I'll watch the US during international competition (Olympics and World Cup). After that, no interest really. I think there are quite a few soccer fans on here, JimJamesak being probably the most well known, so to speak.

                  There are a few fans on the board. I'm a big EPL (Man United is my team) fan. I know UNH GH likes Pompey and there are fans of Man City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Fulham and other sides on this board.

                          I figured most would make that comparison, and it's odd, because I prefer Mary Ann.

                            Most of the time I won't watch soccer unless it's a big event like the FA final, World Cup ( either sex) or a European tournament.

                              This has Facebook written all over it.

                              That little something about Hope Solo's eyes would burn your house down if you ever crossed her.

                              And for the record, I wouldn't quibble between Hope and Alex.
