Today marks an event monumental to the revolution that is US Soccer Talk. A revolution that will echo through the pantheon of soccer news greatness. Today begins the wild and raucous ramblings of a crazy man that at times can be biased and unwilling to hear out a well thought out argument with factual evidence that proves him wrong. I guess you could call this man a "Typical American" and boy howdy, is he proud of it. This man is never one to shy away from offending the politically correct, which seems to be a rarity these days. If he was Irish, he'd be a leprechaun, if he was Argentine, he would hate Messi and think Diego Maradona is the name of an STD. Technically the Diego Maradona thing could be real, that dude is living the life of a drug lord and a God.
Now let's get back to the real meaning behind this blog: The beginning of a revolution. We're a new start up soccer site that will strive to give you up to date articles, blogs, vlogs and anything else the readers want. We want to be an interactive website that let's soccer fans voice their unbiased and biased opinions and have the freedom to discuss this beautiful game with other fans around the world. Our main mission, however, is to bankrupt Facebook and Twitter and become as powerful as Google and eventually buy them out and rule the world.
Once we have this power, we believe we can make the U.S. realize how great soccer is and how it's not boring. "Soccer is so boring" is the most outlandish comment that can possibly be made. Oh yeah ignorant American who doesn't like soccer, please tell us with as much detail why watching NASCAR for what seems like 10 hours doing the same thing over and over is so entertaining. The rest of the world gets it, we're just afraid to fall in love again ever since baseball broke our hearts with all this steroid B.S. And just as slowly as we are to accept baseball back into our hearts, we are slowly answering those late night "are you up" texts from soccer, just wanting us to give it a chance.
Soccer, we love you, we're just afraid of being hurt. Slowly, but surely, we are letting you into our hearts with MLS expansion teams popping up all over the country and interest in the U.S. Men's and Women's National soccer teams at an all time high. Hope is on the horizon, and we're headed in a B line right for it. A great way to describe America's ongoing changing feelings towards soccer is the relationship between the rebels in Star Wars and the Ewoks. At first they didn't understand each other and the Ewoks were foreign and strange to the rebels, but as time went on they realized "holy shit, the Ewoks are bad ass and if we work together we can take down the evil empire and then have a kick ass party together" the evil empire in America's case is ignorance. Let's destroy the ignorance and have that kick ass party with soccer.
