Beautiful soccer fields by Diana Diamond.
Original post made by Mike Nguyen, Crescent Park, on Jul 4, 2006
First, she pointed out that soccer is the least sport "watched" (4%), followed by basketball, baseball and football. I agreed with her with this statistics, but this statistic is completely irrelevant with the 2 new soccer fields.
The city maintained these 2 new soccer fields, so that the kids can "participate and play" soccer. We are not interested in watching soccer, but we want soccer fields for the kids to play on.
Here's the relevant fact for Mrs. Diamond. There are about 18 millions soccer player in this country and they need fields to play on. Soccer is not the most popular "spectator" sport in this country, but it is the most "participating" sport in this country and the world.
Mrs. Diamond, we are not watching the World Cup or MLS games on these 2 fields. Our kids are playing on them and we need them.
