This brilliant Brevity from 2009 sums up many Americans' aversion to the game of soccer (aka "football," as the rest of the globe calls it. The last Sporting Kansas City game I went to ended in a 0-0 tie, as did their game the following week. On Tuesday, the U.S. Men's National Team made it out of Azteca stadium in Mexico City with a 0-0 tie, which earned them one point and was viewed as something of a victory. Sounds strange, but that's just how this game is. And hey, at least there's no break in the action aside from halftime.
If more high-scoring affairs are more your thing, this is a great time of year. The first two rounds of the NCAA men's basketball tourney took place in Kansas City, and I got to attend a few of them. Most of us around here are cheering for KU and Wichita State, but a Florida Gulf Coast Final Four run would be pretty cool, too.
In closing, here's an Easter-themed Savage Chickens that I'll sticky note here to close out this post. Have a great holiday weekend!
