Soccer, or Football to some people, is the worlds most popular sport and I think I just figured out why.  Apparently there are a ton of "nutshots" in soccer, and as America's Funniest Home Videos proved in the early 90's, EVERYONE loves watching a guy getting hit in the crotch.

I equate it to the reason that racing or Hockey is so popular here in America.  If you watch long enough you'll eventually see a crash or a fight, and that's the real reason that people watch these sports.  So maybe the same holds true for soccer as well.  Maybe Billions of fans are watching around the world, just waiting to see the next time a guy gets doubled over in pain holding his privates.
