This is football....
After an hour, a whole goal is scored. Exciting.
Both sports are much more fun when something is on the line (elimination game/WC game or 4th round of a major or big event). Both tend to suffer in the beginning, just like most sports do (NBA is pretty terrible in the first half).
Honestly, I wouldn't have said this before last year, but after watching some of the classic Djokovic/Nadal/Federer matches last year, I think Men's tennis took a step ahead of both of them in regards to viewing interest for my taste.
Still all of em take a backseat when the Fins are on
I love golf and soccer, both are "extremely" exciting for me (and I'm not being sarcastic). Then again there aren't many sports I don't fancy. Watching Bowling is pretty meh and I'm on and off with car racing but I prefer Formula One over Nascar and IndyCar.
That Tim Howard goal was crazy, never seen anything like that. He set the EPL distance for a goal by more than twice the amount lol.
This happened in a Premiership game between Tottenham and Watford in 2007:
... and yes, there really is a player called Shi-ttu (without the - obviously )
Unless you meant a goal from open play, in which you would be correct. Only the 4th time a GK has scored in a Premier League match, although it has happened more in the cups and lower leagues.
Here is another one from a Championship (league below the Prem) match between Leicester City & Preston North End a few years back
The comm sounds so enthusiastic in that one, given what just happened
