reasons to watch futbol

Hellllllllllo Sports Fans,

In honor of Fan Friday, I wanted to share with you a sport I have started watching more regularly within the past 2 years. As you may have caught on, Brad has made me become a futbol fan....and no it's not the American kind. It's the kind that everyone, but the US, loves....SOCCER. Actually that's not true. Come to Portland and you'll see it's really popular here too. Brad and I even have season tickets to the Portland Timbers games. Anyway, after being immersed in the beautiful game (that's what they call it) for a little while now, I thought I would tell you all the reasons why you should give soccer a chance.

Δ The players are hot.

Δ The goals are impressive.

Δ The fans are crazy.

Δ The goal celebrations are LEGIT.

Δ The Wives and Girlfriends of the players are sexy. Hello WAGS. Yes, Shakira is a WAG.

Δ The commentators rival golf commentary and if you watch golf, you know that commentary is gold.

Basically, what I am saying is give soccer a chance, like this American football coach is.


*Editor's note: It's true about the 3/4 capris. Brad is obsessed with them and he didn't even buy them in the women's section. 


So appreciate soccer... or at least appreciate this.


















And last, but not least...I will leave you with a song off of FIFA 2013 (that's the soccer video game in case you didn't know) for #backthatazzup Friday!!!!!

Well I can appreciate the gif. And I can appreciate Shakira... so I should be able to get into soccer, right? I mean football, I mean soccer...

I've tried...I just can't get into soccer! I feel like it's just two hours of them running up and down the field. I wish I could appreciate it more, but it's really just not for me!

I honeymooned in Mexico during the World Cup. It was insane, but definitely interesting to be around a sport that gets so little attention here.

SO glad I checked out Sarah's link up list for fan friday because now I've found another blogger who loves soccer!! Seriously, soccer fans are hard to come by in blogland haha. Love everything about this post, especially the Clint gif!

I had the most LEGIT goal celebration experience when I was at the Timbers vs LA Galaxy a few weeks ago.... Holy Moly!

OMG I love the gif at the end!! I have been hearing about more and more people watching futball actually and I just don't know if I can get into it. I'm a die hard baseball fan! :)

Soccer isn't very popular in the South, it's all about football down here. And baseball is second. I do think the players are hot though so you may be on to something there. Maybe I should become a fan!!

Not going to lie- Football is how I roll. I never got into that there soccer. But, I'll be darned if you aren't friggin' persuasive.... Hilarious GIF.
