Yes indeed. The art in Pro US football is that hitting your holes in succesive fluid strides, no wasted motions that will slow you down is a thing of
beauty. It's violent and brutal yes, but there is some grace. Especially in the air game, when a quarterback hits a reciever in stride and splits the
safeties, or a throw on the run concetrating on who is open downfield while a bunch of fast 280 pounders are at your throat chasing you down.
But, Ill admit. Soccer is bigger than any other sport, with baseball second and when that World Cup comes around, I dont think any drama can compare
to that of a world cup. Exciting, suspenseful, dramatic. All those countries. Imagine a world where NFL allstars compete against CFL allstars, and if
30 other countries had football teams and their allstars representing their countries all go together in a tournament. It has just happened this past
year for baseball and it would be amazing for football. Problem is, I think Europeans won't evolve into playing such a physically demanding sport for
another 15 years at least. NFL europe is composed of undrafted american players and I doubt Europe can muster up players with the physical ability
needed to compete with NFL standards.
