Video: 52 goals from 15 MLS games in just over five minutes

As we all know, soccer is an incredibly boring sport that no one cares about.

To confirm this belief, the wizards at Kick TV - a collaboration between Major League Soccer and YouTube - put together a useful video.

It is a compilation of the 52 goals that were scored across the 15 MLS games played this past Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. That is an average of 3.47 goals per game.

The video seems to indicate that all of those goals were witnessed by actual people, too. Even the ones scored in Chivas USA's home game.

Some of the goals may have also been witnessed on television. ESPN reported that its Portland-Seattle telecast Sunday evening drew the largest overnight rating for a MLS game on any of its channels in 11 years.

So I repeat, soccer is boring and no one cares about it. Right?
