It's funny how cultures differ. If you ask Canadians, they will say hockey is the best sport. If you ask Europeans, they will usually say baseball is boring and American football is stupid while football (soccer) is the king of sports and the beautiful game.

Soccer is a frustrating game to play and I get no satisfaction from playing it. Sort of like playing golf, eh?

Are you kidding me? Soccer is the most fun sport to play and also one of the easiest. You just need a ball and nothing else. It's nothing like golf LOL.

Easy if you're young and in shape. All that running up and down the soccer field is not easy.

But then how are American football, basketball or baseball easier to play? The first one is also dangerous, requires a lot more than a ball and nobody can play it properly on the street.

In baseball, if you're playing left field, you're not going to have all that many balls hit to you, so there's a lot of standing around. In little league, coaches usually put their worst players in left field, so they can do minimal harm. There's just less action in baseball, which is why most Americans prefer football. I prefer baseball, but I'm odd.

You got it mixed up. Majority of batters are right handed, thus pull to left field. It's the right field that has the slower fielder/player.

That's right. I always wondered why they had me playing right field.
