Football Faux Pa?

July 7, 2007

I have really gotten into soccer over the last year, so much so that I watched most of a Chicago Fire match last weekend that had no offense at all in it (other than the lack of quality play from both teams). While watching all this soccer, I have gotten interested in other leagues, specifically the MLS (kinda) and Serie A in Italy (it got picked up by FSC for this season). Is it wrong to cheer for teams in other leagues? I am a big Everton fan, but some other teams are fun to watch in other leagues so is it bad to cheer for them as long as they are not playing Everton? I am open to thoughts on this because soccer is not quite the distinction of different sports in the US, but also isn’t quite like cheering for two teams in the same sport. In any case, what do you think?
