Dec 17, 2012 America’s Forgotten Sport is on the Rise
There are four major sports in the United States, their places solid and their popularity secure. However, in the coming decades a newcomer may threaten to overtake one or more of them. The rest of the world has already figured out something very important – soccer is an exhilarating and fun game. Sooner or later, we Americans may realize this as well.
In fact, many people already have. Soccer is one of the most popular recreational youth sports. While many people are thrilled that football season is upon us, there are as many or more kids who are delighted to be able to line up for penalty kicks, practice dribbling and are honing their heading skills.
These passionate underdogs whose favorite sport doesn’t get enough play on television or even at school, should be rewarded for their resolve and enthusiasm. Spirit items such as mini soccer balls mean quite a bit to these warriors of the field, seeing as the amount of attire and commercial items available to them is far less than for other sports. A mini soccer ball is a great way to keep kids playing soccer while they wait for the day that their favorite players are national icons along with the legends of baseball, basketball, football and hockey.
