Sec. 325 FF Seats 3 & 4. I've also gained a few over the summer. ;)

Guilty as charged. I'm a North American excitement junkie. :) Just like most of the kids now have tattoos all over their bodies, a particular sport is just as endearing to us when we have been exposed to it since childhood. I also played basketball and volleyball, and also ran track. Don't enjoy watching on TV though. We all have our different tastes, and then trying to make time for them, is a whole other issue.

Yes, absolutely. My older daughter and nephew both have played soccer all their lives, and both were glued to the World Cup, along with some geezers in the family who knew soccer before they even knew other sports existed. haha

I have your family in my thoughts. Go Alex Go!

There are good "reasons" I have difficulty watching soccer. Growing up in the 70's no one played soccer. We all played hockey or baseball. Soccer was something far and foreign. Something my dad loved and couldn't get any of because 24 hour sports cable stations and the internet didn't exist. I admit I am not a connoisseur of soccer, and even though I appreciate the athleticism, intricate moves and strategies of the sport, what makes it unwatchable for me is the predictability. In hockey, a team can have a 2 goal lead with a minute to go, but you'll still be sitting on the edge of your seat because you know the game is not over. In soccer, a 2 goal lead is pretty much the end of the game. It's like watching a fantastic movie, but already knowing the ending. Something I have trouble doing. It sure is fun to play, and watching amateurs play is also fun because mo changes constantly. But, it is the most popular sport in the world for a reason. Most of the world doesn't get to watch hockey. ;)

The damage was already done by that time. Are you saying that dismal year was all on Staubitz? But, that really wasn't my point. The players seem to like their goons better than some of us do.

The great debate over Enforcer/goon. To be or not to be? I really don't think it matters what we all think. I can live without them, but, what do the players think? That's where the answer lies. I remember when Staubitz was acquired. The team seemed happier. They played with an extra jump and confidence. Yes, it is true that our team cannot be called smurfs any longer. Thank goodness. If a team can protect it's own without a 4 minute guy, and are already intimidating with their size and team toughness, so be it.

OK, makes better sense. He lost a lot of money though, being a dog, in his last playoff performance.

Shoulda taken the Islanders' deal. That's cheap.
