      After this World Cup, I would think Americans would view soccer as the sport where Major Pain is inflicted every 2 minutes, at least judging by all the writhing agony going on, on the field. Apparently no one ever gets hurt in American football, cuz the only time they bring on a stretcher is when the coroner shows up.

        Good point. Of course we all know what happens when they hit 40.

        New knees and hips. May be they should writhe around a bit more, rather than taking all those cortisone shots (i forgot the rehab for pain killers).

          I am not aware that "cortisone shots" would lead to further joints' deterioration.

            Gridders have more problems related to those health-filled "supplements" they take as players... from what I hear, anyhoo.

              You're talking about distance runners here, right?

                Well it allows them to be on the field. So indirectly they do
