So the other day I started talking about how soccer was a boring sport, how it should be in the same category with ping pong and golf, I made mention that it is just a “kick the ball in the net” sport and how the referees penalty cards reminded me of the cards you had to pull in kindergarten when you were in trouble. I think I even figured out this whole points deal, at least in the World Cup playoffs. If you even call it playoffs. There are still some things that get me annoyed though. I don’t understand why everyone has to blow those stupid horns the entire time that the game is being played. Now I definitely understand about making noise. I’m a huge football fan. College football. In the SEC. In Alabama. We know how to make noise. But we make the noise during the big plays of the games. When your opponent has 4th down and they are deep in their own territory, when you see the quarterback running for his life when a 300lb lineman is ripping through the line trying to smash every bone in his body. We get loud, very loud. The more difficult we can make it for that player to hear the snap the more likely there is going to be a penalty for false start or something of that nature. Then that throws out all chances of going for it so the opponent punts the ball to our team. Success. The fans helped out by making noise. See I understand all about making noise during a sporting event but this constant buzzing noise, man doesn’t that get annoying? I do have to say it keeps you on the edge of your seat though. Kind of like the music in a horror film. You never know when the killer is going to jump from behind the corner. You never know when the USA is going to score. But when they do, it is pretty cool.
