You mean it would get one person excited. A pretty big fish too. And if you happen to speak French (even if you have no relatives in France whatsoever!), that fish keeps trying to spit the hook back at you because, obviously, you know nothing about soccer since you clearly think it’s played with the hands (I’m sure there’s a fallacy or something here but I don’t really care!)
For various reasons (like a freaking nice day at the beach!), I only started to watch at the 84th minute and I quite enjoyed the overtime but I was ready to turn off the TV if they would have gone to the shootout. Thankfully, Inestia settled that with a great goal. Even if they are “part of the game”, the biggest championship in the world shouldn’t be decided by penalty kick.
Also JJR, I totally agree with you about the amount of questionable calls done during the world cup. The best refs in the world keep making human mistakes. But it’s “part of the game” !
I must admit that as a younger person, I didn’t watch much soccer and often thought it was boring. Then came Maradona; all of a sudden, this sport became more and more interesting to watch and I did watch it on and off until a few years ago. But lately, I am starting to realize that if I watch the last few minutes of a game and the highlights, I’m satisfied. It’s beautiful to watch the spaniards control of the ball for sure, but doing that for 90 minutes without finishing annoys this viewer a lot.
Mais, puisque je parle franÃ§ais, il est clair que je ne m’y connais pas en soccer! Par consÃ©quent, je n’ai pas le droit d’avoir une opinion sur ce sujet.
