Default Baseball?

As John Kruk said: "Lady, I'm not an athlete. I'm a professional baseball player."

Comparing athletes across all sports is pointless. Each sport requires a different skillset to be elite. There are definitely athletes who could be very good at many different sports, but it's ridiculous to assume a great football player would also make a great soccer player or tennis player or gymnast.

We might as well be asking whether an apple, orange, or banana makes the best watermelon.

Actually she's right. In general, most football players are fat. If you're fat, there's only a couple options for you: football or sumo wrestling

And soccer players are wimpy flopping cry babies that can't play any other sport especially a contact one...

Soccer parents know their kids are slight wussies with zero agility and the mental toughness of a JUICEBOX

Youth soccer in the US attracts C and D level athletes early on and throughout the age groups. Wonder why we, an enormous wealthy country can't compete internationally? ONE reason is the athletic pool to which they pull from. Top athletes go elsewhere. Soccer in the US is for kids that can't.
