Soccer Rocks!!

Soccer is a really cool sport. It is also widely spread and the most popular sport in the world. There are many sources to help back me up on this. The sport has much diversity in the people, teams, countries, culture, the list just goes on and on.

As a soccer player, I too agree that there is the same amount of intensity in playing soccer as there is other sports, but without the dangers of head injuries like in football or rugby. Soccer can be played anywhere with anyone because its so easy to learn or just to pickup. And as stated in the link above, poverty is no boundary. All you need is a ball.

I love playing soccer because it’s not a contact sport. I personally play goalkeeper because it is a fun position in my opinion. You are kind of the last wall, the final stopping point if the other team tries to score. It can have epic saves and great reward, and bare misses with disappointment. That is all a part of all games though. Somebody has to win and somebody has to lose. If you do play soccer, or you imagine you do, what position would/do you play?

  1. Hi, Ethan. I am a student from http://huzzah.edublogs.org in Ms. Smith’s class. I used to play soccer as well. I usually played left defender. I liked it because I was part of stopping the other team’s players from attacking. I feel the same about baseball as you do about soccer. Baseball is also a sport that you can play without a lot of money. It’s played in some of the poorest countries in the world and sometimes with only sticks and rocks. Some of these players have become so good doing this that they have become professional baseball players in the MLB! I hope your team has a great season!

    Sincerely, Finn

  3. I agree that soccer rocks and that goalkeepers are awesome I play goalie just like you and everything you said was totally true and that was really fun to read thank you.

  4. I also love playing soccer. It is such a fun and active sport. The only thing that is bad is when you have to play in the snow. Other than that
