Tottenham and Manchester City opened the Barclays Premier League, with a 0-0 tie, or as the men from across the pond would say Nil, Nil. Coming off one of the most viewed World Cups in recent history, Americans will try to capture that moment and follow one of the worlds most popular sports.
But I will argue, a sport that repeatedly ends in ties and low scoring matches, is nothing more than a waste of time. Watching Peter Crouch try to score against a bunch of average guys and coming up empty is nothing more than boring. Futbol, needs to create excitement for the fans. Ties are for people who think every thing should be equal. Even hockey gets it, overtime then a shoot out.
With the NFL preseason and College football about to get under way, its safe to say that EPL Soccer has no place for the American sports fan. So take your Bangers, bitter beers, and ugly women, and will see you in 4 years.
