Perhaps they have vast lands, or they have better urban designing, Americans boast of many large parks everywhere.  Lying on the peripheral area of the parks, children playing ground, jogging and walking path, basketball and tennis courts, and maybe some public or community swimming pools are there to encompass a stretch of large, green lawn.

Except some people playing frisbees with their dogs and holding occasional outdoor concerts, the human activity mostly seen in the lawns is soccer playing.  Strange enough, almost always the players I've seen are girls under 12.  They use moveable nets as makeshift goals, cones to indicate sidelines, and they are wearing uniforms and even having coaches to guide them.  The girls all have fun kicking, dribbling, passing, and scrambling for balls.  All I've found on their faces are passion and earnestness.

I am not sure, but it must be part of American system which has successful led America the long-standing number one in women's soccer ball.  Remeber that legendary Mia Hamm?  She is still American national heroine, a favorite of media and advertisement until now.  But her comtemporary rival Sun Wen(孫雯), once world Miss Soccer ball of the year, is not as that lucky in China. 

P.S.  Attached below is the online couplets with heavy sarcasm on China men's soccer team:  (Someone please do something: we can save panda from extinction; why can't we save our soccer teams, then?)

中國足球隊在西安剛結束的世錦足球預赛O:1輸給敘利亞足球隊!於是有球迷拿出若干年前的對聯,調侃國家足球隊,發洩心中輸球憤慨~

上聯:试問中國足球有多愁,
下聯:恰似一群太監上青楼。
横批:無人能射.

上聯:再问中國足球有多愁,
下聯:恰似一群妓女守青樓。
横批:總是被射.

上聯:三問中國足球有多愁,
下聯:恰似陽痿患者逛青樓。
横批:欲射不能.

上聯:四问中國足球有多愁,
下聯:恰似早洩患者逛青樓。
横批:射也白射.

上聯:五問中國足球有多愁,
下聯:恰似一群白痴逛青樓。
横批:不知咋射.

It is not fair to say that 孫雯 has  been long forgotten, as she is still an icon of Chinese woman football.

FYI, please refer to:
