As far as I’m concerned, there are two seasons in America (who cares what the weatherman says!). There is football season and off season. Then there’s everything else in between.

Why am I saying such a ridiculous thing?

Because I’m a die-hard soccer fan!

Heck, I love everything, as long as it involves an oblong-shaped ball, is played on a 120-yard long field, and involves blocking and tackling, I’m all for it.

But as long as I live, there will be never Let any game be as exciting and majestic as NFL Football. There’s a reason the National Football League is the most popular sport in the United States. Because it is the best!

But I know: you want to be convinced.

Good. I will convince you with three reasons.

1) Soccer fits our lifestyle. Don’t get me wrong, I like other sports too. But have you ever been watching a baseball or basketball game that started at 10pm? Look, I enjoy racing as much as the next one, but I have to go to work in the morning!

And I know Prime Time Football can be late too (for those of us on the East Coast), but at least most games are played on Sundays. And that’s the key, because most people don’t go to school or work on Sundays. Big win in my book.

2) The NFL exhibits The Game at its highest level. Look, I know there are a lot of people who will argue with me about Pro being better than College (yes, that’s an argument for another time). And that’s fine.

But no one can tell me that better athletic feats are on display every week than at The Football Field. The jaw-dropping sacks, crushing punches, and razor-sharp plays on Offense, Defense, and Special Teams of all kinds.

I have no idea how the Officers can receive most of your calls in real time. Even in super silly slow motion replays, it’s hard to tell if a player’s toes are touching the white stripe or not.

How can you not appreciate that athleticism?

3) every game is so important. The weekly build for Sunday is an incredible crescendo for Kickoff. And whether you’re talking Week 4 or Week 14, every game feels like a must-win affair.

Just think, when your favorite team falls 4 in a row, that means they haven’t won in a month! And because so few games are played, the importance and magnitude of that week’s ballgame is larger than life.

Okay, maybe it just feels that way to me.

And that’s the beauty of it. There really is nothing in the whole world like soccer.
