I don't feel the way you do about football, soccer and baseball.
Professional football in this country cannot be played by
ordinary people.  They have to be giants.  It is the same way
with basketball: the best players are virtually freaks.  But
normal sized people can play soccer.
Exactly my point.  Soccer is a wimpy sport that anyone can play.
Well, almost anyone.  I'm so wimpy I probably couldn't play it.
As for baseball, well... when my kids all got stuck out in right
field while the coaches kid got to be pitcher I learned that
baseball, softball actually, wasn't much of a sport except for a
favored few.  When I put my kids in soccer they all got to play
their guts out every minute that they were in good enough shape
to play.
Grampa Bill never let any of us kids play sports.  He thought
that we wouldn't study if we were playing.  I guess I showed him.
I didn't study anyway.  :-)

At the time I wasn't too concerned about not playing sports, but
now I wish I had done something.  I will admit that those who
play soccer seem to have a good time.  I personally don't see how
you can call it "shooting" when the kicked ball goes no where
near the goal.  So I will grant you a point on soccer perhaps
being a fun game to play.  But I think I would rather drive dull
nails into my temples than to have to sit through watching a
soccer match.
