Mid-afternoon distraction: Stuff American soccer fans say

Jul 3, 2012, 4:10 PM EDT

Sometimes we soccer fans get a little chip on our shoulder. Ahem. “Uh, guilty.”

So, you have to have a little sense of humor about this one. It’s all about the silly things American soccer fans say.

Example: “My intramural team in college was runner-up three years in a row, so I think I know what I’m talking about.”

Or this one: “It’s only the most popular game in the world, but I can see where everyone else in the world could be wrong.”

And I think we all know that really long, loud, irritating “Goooooaaaaalll” call is coming, right?

I do believe if you’re being honest about it, you’ll recall a couple of these little ditties tumbling without apology from your own lips … no?

Be honest now!

    I was watching a YouTube of the Chelsea vs. MLS game from 2006. I thought it was interesting when the crowd had the same reaction to a missed cross as they would’ve with an incomplete pass in American football.

    Awesome. Man U/Beatles/Pizza is my favorite.
