I don’t think I’m going to make many enemies here by saying I really don’t care about the World Cup. While I do support pretty much any socially sanctioned reason to gather in a bar at 9 am, I don’t like soccer the rest of the year, so I can’t pretend to like it now. And it turns out Triumph the Insult Comic Dog agrees, giving what amounts to the perfect description of the game:
You have to love soccer. The excitement of minimal contact, the thrill of low scoring. If you like watching porn in reverse, this sport is for you.
