As one who grew up with baseball, I'm a relatively newcomer to the "beautiful game." With a tiny bit of sadness I must admit that I've been completely drawn in and taken by futbol/soccer.

Barring the majestic artistry of pitching, the ebb and flow of futbol is just unparalleled to what baseball offers. Nothing compares to the constant jostling, positioning, triangulation, passing, and the ultimate goal-scoring moment which naturally elicits some form of reaction from the viewers.

Does anyone else identify with this experience?

Yes I do. I grew up going to baseball games with my Dad. I loved it. I became a Mom and my first born son began to play soccer, never had an interest in T-ball/softball/baseball. So,thoughout the years, we have grow to LOVE the game of "soccer". I will watch any game of any team on TV with my son, and we have traveled to Europe to see games there. I think that these talented players are some of the best athletes there are and it is beautiful to watch.
