Ok, first, we are not all fat
. As a matter of fact (if you want irrefutable evidence) only
10-20% of American youth are overweight and I'm not one of them. Second, the war in the middle east is totally a land-based conflict so we are not to blame (well we are partly to blame, but I'm not going into that). Third, we do have SOME
good soccer players, David Beckham included (sorry). Fourth, and not quite last, there is the small problem that our country is totally bogus
in that we do our own thing and invent weird sports like baseball, basketball andamerican football. Note, these sports are all far more popular than soccer and any pickup games there might be are all played by Hispanic people who don't let "gringos" play
(at least in my neighborhood). Fifth, my parting comment, the USA sucks in all the world tournaments because, you're right, we play videogames and goof off
. We lack total dedication to football. The more dedicated teams, such as Italy and Brazil, could easily crush us and they take full advantage of that.
-P.S. The next Ronaldhino or Pele could come from anywhere, even fat America.
