The joys of soccer | Letter

Editor, The Beacon:

Soccer, or football, is a wonderful sport!

When I was working with an Olympic Team, we'd often play pick-up games with the European teams; it was a wonderful way to relate and mix.

It's a superior game to American football for aerobic fitness, and far less likely to result in the injuries that we see so often in American football.

When I was in high school, the football jocks were the macho bullies, and I can't see much advantage to that sort of culture.

Soccer never seems to generate that sort of testosterone.  It's a great game, and I am so glad to see it gaining a foothold in the U.S.
