Confessions of a Pig: Women’s Soccer

Oink oink!

Like a lot of my fellow US Americans, my Sunday focus was on the U.S. women’s soccer team as they battled Japan for the World Cup title.  I like soccer.  I mean, I like it about every two years.  I watch the men’s World Cup, watch the women’s World Cup the next year, then rest for two years, then back to the men’s World Cup, etc.

But when it comes to the female competition, I have an increasingly difficult time following the actual game, mostly because I find ogling the beautiful participants a novel distraction.  It even serves as a warm-up to then Googling the beautiful participants, and before long, I am looking at a full computer screen of sweaty, seductive Hope Solos.

Is the game over yet?

I’m wondering this: do female baseball fans have the same problem?  I mean, I know that the ladies love their baseballers… I can’t tell ya how many times my cousin Holly has declared her undying love for Jimmy Edmonds with his shirt off and one of my sisters never shuts up about what she’d do to Adam Wainwright; but seriously, do women lose track of what’s actually happening during the game because of that lust?

While I wait for your answer, you can find me on Alex Morgan’s website.  I might be there a while.

Don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

Peace,

Jeff

El. Oh. El. Oh yes, such a terrible piggy. ;) There is no denying that are a lot – okay, a lot, a lot – of really good looking guys in cleats, and I feel it would be downright criminal of me not to admire the works of art before me on the field. Much like you with the U.S. women’s soccer team, not noticing would be lying and not admiring would be shame. But I can honestly say that no one’s…um…assets are so fine they have distracted me from keeping track of the game. Is this annecdotal evidence that men are lustier than women? Nah, I tend think it just means that women are better multitaskers.

Actually, I only watch the baseball and don’t notice the players. Do you believe that???

I was reading the other day that when Kevin Maas (hot prospect for the Yankees back in the early 90′s) would hit a home run he had his own cheering section of ladies who would remove their shirts as he rounded the bases. Just saying.

Kristen — I think you’re right. Men got shafted on the multitasking gene ;-)
Cat — HAHA! Sure you do… I believe you.
Blue Jays Nest — Now that’s reason enough to make it to the Big Leagues. How can I work something like that out?

I understand your piggyness and you have nothing to apologize for. Lusting after athletes is part of the sporting experience!

Thanks, Jane! Good to know I’m in the clear…hehehe… for now!

Jeff, I would have posted earlier, but I’ve been on Alex’s website the last two days…I also enjoyed the game on Sunday, except the ending. I personally don’t like team sports decided by a one-on-one confrontation (I hate hockey shoot-outs, too, btw).
