Perhaps more popular on the womens side, but they at least have some achievement to back it up...the men are going the other direction...

Who wants to watch a bunch of grass fairies running around?

Soccer's about as exciting as watching paint dry. If I'm going to watch a boring sport, I'll watch golf. Aren't many overpaid cry babies there. Plus I can appreciate a good shot.
