Name To Fame
You ever watch something happening and think to yourself-
“Self….something is missing from this event. Something that makes it pop with anticipation and excitement. But what could that something be?”
I was having that little dilemma after the US got knocked out of the World Cup.
Here’s the dilemma.
I have figured out why soccer, as we in the states call it, is not as popular as it is in the rest of the world.
(It’s not just because we call it something different.)
We have never had a one name player to polarize us into being fans.
There are legendary players of the game. Most are identified by 1 name.
No first name middle initial last name
No first name last name
Like the main guy in the following clip.
I’m not even going to write his name. Once the clip is over the name will be evident.
In the clip, he shows what he does and how he does it.
It’s why he only needs one name.
And another thing….
Our sports announcers are terrible at broadcasting this sport.
They got no passion for it.
I want an announcer who is well versed in the game and it’s players and covers the entire game like it’s the first time he saw boobies.
The rest of the world has football announcers who love boobies.
Just watch…or close your eyes and listen. Even if you don’t speak the language, you will hear the passion in their voices.
Fix that and the game will be huge here in the states.
Just like Tim Howard was against Belgium.
A historic 16 saves as goalkeeper.
I got one word for him….
