Re: a better test for big data
@tigkg

I recently hired a contractor to install new windows and doors in my house (it was actually during the World Cup). He was from El Salvador and grew up playing soccer and even moved to France and played professionally for awhile before he had a bad knee injury that ended his career. It was very interesting to talk to him about sports and his view on American football and baseball. I learned a little more about soccer from him too. His views on our sports was exactly as you said...baseball was boring and he didn't even see the point in NFL!

@ batye

I agree, it is hard to find time for the simple pleasures like watching TV with the busy lives we lead these days.

@ Batye

Yes, people and situations do change, but when it comes to physical assault on the playing field, one time should be enough. No second chance is deserved there.

Re: a better test for big data
It was a very good tournament. Most of the time the World Cup is pretty good because the teams have so much motivation and pride. That contrasts quite a bit with run of the mill soccer. I guess it depends upon where you grew up. Most Europeans think baseball is boring and the NFL is strange! One thing i love about soccer: no commercial interruptions during play!!!

Re: a better test for big data
Yes Batye, 

In any situation there are underlying factors that not everyone is aware of. But in a situation like Mr. Likes to Bite in the world cup, one time should have been too many.
