I think it’s pretty safe to say, despite the opinions of many outspoken Americans, that the world has chosen soccer (or football everywhere outside the US) as the best all-around sport. The adoption of the sport, either through watching or playing, is almost 100% in many countries throughout South America, Europe, and Africa, many even thinking of it less as a sport and more as a religion. Even in Asia, Oceana, and the United States, while soccer traditionally hasn’t been popular, it has grown to be one of the top sports (if not the top) in any given place. There are many reasons for that, one being that the game is incredibly malleable and the outcome can rely on any one of many different factors.
This makes each and every game exciting and novel, as the factors can range from moments of individual brilliance to calls made by the referee to even, as we learn in the video above, the weather. In this fantastic video by F2Freestylers, you’ll learn all about the effects of the weather on the outcome of any given game; it’s more substantial that you might think. The video is documentary-style, something the F2 don’t often do, but this one is executed very well, with a couple interesting and entertaining experiments as well as interviews with many famous coaches and former players.
