Every couple of years, I get sucked-in by my euro-centric acquaintances about the so-called “world sport” of soccer whether it’s the World Cup or the Euro Cup.
My footy friends tell me this time will be different and the games will be exciting but every single time, I’m conned. Led down the nil-nil, primrose path.
The latest football folly was the 2016 Euro Cup that mercifully ended last weekend. I tried watching again only to find that even at the world-class level, soccer excels only as a superb substitute for Sominex.
European elitists proclaim it the “beautiful game” but what about something more manly like Canada’s national winter sport?
Watch as I give my take on what separates hockey from soccer and why hockey truly is the best game you can name.
