I'm not going to dwell on why I don't find the big four U.S. sports appealing (football: boring; baseball: even more boring; basketball: the shorts and bad gym smells; hockey: too cold). Instead, I'll focus on what I absolutely love about soccer.
This list is dedicated to Tim Howard, who showed the world what being a goalie is all about. What does that have to do with the 4th of July? Nothing except timing. What does Tim Howard have to do with music? Nothing. Although I do sort of feel about him the way I feel about Tom Morello.
