Am I the only soccer mom here on the Hub pages?
I'm really tired of soccer right now. The year round play, two different teams, and try-outs.
Wish he'd practice his trumpet as much as he plays with that soccer ball.
Glad he is in it though, keeps him off the streets
Sorry Jane, but I hate soccer. Not soccer moms, per se, just soccer. My mom made me play it when I was in middle school and it was a nightmare; terrible coach who favored his daughter and was a bastard to others.
I'm so glad my son is on swim team. Not as many weekend meets as other sports, great kids, nice parents.
No, Jane, you're not alone. I'm a former soccer mom. For years, I juggled (between my 3 kids) six soccer teams (school and town), two football teams and a roller hockey team. Oh, let's not forget basketball! Oh, and I was a single parent. It was constant driving and spectating and cheering...
Don't get down about it. It is good for the kids. My kids are all older now, but they are totally happy about their soccer days. And two of them still play in adult leagues.
Who knows...one of your kids may get a scholarship from it!
I loved soccer when I was growing up but I know it stressed my mom out. I had the opportunity to play for Florida but decided to start a Film Production Company instead when I was 17 with some friends.
I never will know what could have been but my mom breathed a sigh of relief since she didn't have to fly from Minnesota to Florida to see me play and visit.
I loved soccer. I played until I was 16. My brother and sister played as well. And my dad coached At one point all three of us were playing. I played mostly rec though, which isn't the headache school and travel teams can be. No try-outs, just practice and Saturday games. I loved it
It seems the only place for soccer in the US is really as a game for little kids.
Sorry about the whine. He loves it! I'm sure once fall league & MS play begins, I'll be ready to go watch 3-4 games a week.
Me does not like soccer, my son was in it for two straight years, and he finally said I don't like soccer mommy and all the running, I said me neither, me neither....lol
Soccer mums are supposed to be really hot! *whispers by the side* hate the word 'soccer' makes it sound like a girl's game!

Okay, here's another forum category I noticed that's been severely under used, so I thought I'd give it a whirl. Here's a great question for you folks out there. If you were a Youth Football coach of a pee wee team, and you had a winning record. Hell, lets just say you're...

While it is famous worldwide, soccer is low in the ranks of favorite televised sporting events by most. Why? Should soccer get more American publicity?

Is Baseball a dying sport?I think yes. World Series ratings are down by 65% in the last 25 years. Same goes for the All Star Game. Fox had its worst year in ratings for their game of the week in 2012 (averaged a 2 share for 24 games). Don't let the local TV deals or fantasy leagues fool you.
