I'm not talking about the whole game, just the highlights. I was glad that ESPN Sportscenter decided to show highlights of the Rapids-DC game last week. However, I think the highlights failed to capture the excitementof the game. To me the game is exciting because of its defensive intensity --- making every scoring oppurtunity more valuable --- and exciting. Showing only the goals in highlights, then misses all the additional excitement of the game. I think highlight shows would do best to also show the great saves and excellent clearances when there are otherwise great scoring oppurtunities and it can get the Sportscenter crowd to see for themselves why this game can be so exciting even when it is low scoring. Most people think that in order to attract the non-soccer fans to the sport you have to somehow, make it higher scoring; I think sports reporters in the US simply have to do a better job of selling the beauty of the defensive intensity of this sport.
