Writer's Block: Goal!
Goooooooooaaaaaaaaalllllll! Today marks the anniversary of football (soccer) star Pele's 1000th goal. Why has professional footie never caught on in the United States?


a number of factor. low scores, little violence, and unless you're really familiar with what's going on, there's a whole lot of nothing. setting up a breakaway can take 45 seconds of nothing but passing the ball back and forth, drawing the defenders forward. that shit is tedious.
