And not just because, you know, it has, hands down, the most beautiful players (this is an inarguable fact). I don't watch enough soccer to have a really well-formed opinion, so when I saw this goal by Robin Van Persie of the Netherlands today, my first thought was, "Wow, that looks great, but is this one of those cases where I'm amazed by something that people who are more familiar with the sport find mundane?"
