I root for the Patriots and for no one in soccer. 

Well, I guess I liked the women's U.S. olympic soccer team when they took off their shirts.

I realize that soccer is an intricate and universally-loved game, but there just isn't enough scoring, and for me, the majority of the games are like watching paint dry.  That's why the anoouncers bellow at the top of their lungs for at least 10 minutes when someone actually scores.

I don't like golf either.  As Karl Malone said, it just spoils a nice walk.

No offense, but I think most Europeans we have the same feeling about baseball and american football. IMO, American football looks too mechanic and baseball is simply boring. But of course, I dont know anything about those sports so take my words for what it worth.

Concerning football (soccer), I support FC Barcelona, after a couple of dissapointing seasons, it looks that this year we are again in the good truck. Sorry celticsmaestro, Cristiano Ronaldo will see next year Messi picking up the golden ball :-)

To be accurate messi had an impressive 2008 second half. Lately he seems a little off.

Besides , barcelona won`t win anything this season ;-) and that counts as a disadvantage

He only has been off (kind off) for two weeks, but he will be great again very soon.
As for titles, Barça is on the final for the Spanish Cup, leading the Liga and in good position to qualify for Champions Legue Top 8. How could they do better?

PS. As a former american football player I ask those that feel that soccer is a lesser sport to keep your comments as educated as possible. Soccer is the game of the world and it just makes us Americans look ignorant.

I watch Watford, currently in the Championship. I've missed 4 home game in the last 15 seasons.

I also support Glasgow Celtic in Scotland and try to get to see them play once each season.

I went to Kaiserslautern in 1983 to see Watford's first ever UEFA Cup game.
We lost 3 - 1, but won the 2nd leg 3 - 0. Those were the days.

Clube Atletico Mineiro, from Brazil. Not the most succesful team, but their fans are second to none.

You may have a conversation with Casperian, our resident Lautern fan.
