Any other soccer

Any other soccer fans on here?

I think soccer is easily the coolest sport. It requires a balance of physical and mental capabilities, and a ton of team work. What do you guys think?

I like soccer, but personally, I get tired of it.  That's the sport that just about everybuggy in the whole world plays.  I want to know if anybuggy plays any sports besides soccer.  I do gymnastics, ski, and swim.  And I love field hockey.  I have a cousin who plays in the SUNY New York Field Hockey.  She's gone to Europe to represent New York and the country.

I LOOOVE soccer. I have been playing for 3 1/2 years. I hope to become a pro but I'm not sure if i'll be able to.

I adore playing almost every kind of sport, but soccer is the one I happen to be the best at. I play sweeper, midfield and forward, depending on what coach I have. Unfortunately for me, where I live, they don't allow homeschoolers to play on a public or private school soccer team, so I don't know what I'm going to do once I get out of the middle school league I'm in. =(  On a lighter note, I do get to play indoor soccer in the winter. =D

Aww, that really does stink. =(

Indoor soccer is awesome, though, as is futsal. My soccer season goes year-round, basically, because I have the spring season, play tournaments all summer, the fall season, and then futsal and indoor during the winter. It's tons of fun!

I've been playing soccer for about 6 years. I'm on a traveling team. Sometimes, it does get a bit boring, but it's always fun and takes a lot of mental and physical work. I also love tennis and basketball. Tennis helps me with balance. I play on the Junior High Team--city tournaments, not school, for tennis--and a traveling team. Both are my favorite sports, as you can see!

I like watching soccer on the tellie, but I don't like to actually play. My favorite soccer teams are Portugal and Venezuela; oh, I almost forgot Italy.

LOL! I love swimming in the ocean. I don't mind the cold temperature. It feels very soothing and refreshing.

I agree. Soccer is the coolest sport out there. I play on my school's team and I really enjoy it . I play mid-field which is the hardest posistion in my opinion. You never stop running up and down the field and it's your job to get the ball to someone who can score a goal! At my school, soccer is not one of the top sports. Not a lot of people are interested which is awful! I think that it is an extremely exciting sport and you have to be very athletic to play. I love it!!! :-)

Soccer is the pwnage!! On my team's Tuesday practice, we practice using our body to block the ball. My coach accidently hit me really hard in the stomach with a ball. >.< Then, in our scrimmage, I got hit in the ear. On Thursday, when I arrived he said, "Hey, Zinc, hand me a ball so I can practice throwing it at you!" T_T Not funny.
