SOCCER FLASH GAME, KICKUPS This is the perfect "goof at the office" flash game. All you have to do is keep the soccer ball up in the air by kicking it with your mouse and the game records how many times you do it. I was able to get up to 21 just by messing with it for a couple of minutes. It's so simple it's addictive.
I remember having to do kickups when I played soccer as a kid. I think Soccer was the only sport I really enjoyed even though I always had to play defender. I know most American Sports Enthusiasts still poo-poo on soccer and say it's not a real sport--which is ridiculous. They only say that because they want to hold onto some sort of perceived nationalist identity somehow retained by baseball, football and basketball (and now possibly golf). I mean soccer isn't a sport? It's huge everywhere else in the world so the US of course can't accept it. But I think it will slowly squeeze its way into a marketable scene. Almost every other person I know played soccer growing up. All the sport needs is some good marketing and a connection with beer; and some controversy like a big stadium brawl. Or some drug charges or sexual scandals. And topless soccer cheerleaders (come to think of it, all sports need topless cheerleaders--especially golf).
