Best athletes in the world.
And I'm only poking fun at cyclists due to TT.
I played some soccer, primarily because I was a 5'7" white kid at a school that was good at football and basketball. Busted lips and noses and pulled quads and stuff, but not a lot of serious injuries at my level or in college. The basketball guys were blowing out knees and tearing achilles and breaking shoulders all the time. It almost seemed like they were getting injured more than football players.
They do. And it's often colder in Moscow, because it's more inland and far away from the sea, so star-spangled teams quite often has some trouble over there.
It's the same in handball. They're busting knees and ankles quite often.
I think the reason most football fans dislike or make fun of soccer is because what we have here in America is so watered down. I won't ever try to catch an American game, but the games overseas, wow, those are some intense moments.
It seems like most of our country's best athletes go into other sports, not soccer.
MLS is slowly improving. It will never be as big as it is in other countries, but if the fan support keeps growing it will attract more foreign players.
USA might be +300m people, but in soccer USA is more like a -100m country.
I got hurt more in soccer than in football and basketball combined. Never got hurt in basketball and only witness turned ankles... not much else. Never twisted mine or anything so I felt Godly.
Literally broke a guy's ankle on a crossover though. Bragging rights to this day. He still jokes about it.
You should walk on to a NBA team. LOL
Any sport where there is a good chance the game ends in a tie sucks, hockey included.
