If Georges can’t turn you into a soccer fan, then nothing can.
While there has been a lot of buzz about the growing number of Americans passionate about the world’s favorite sport, one important group has been overlooked during the World Cup.
Let’s face it, if any sport was designed to interest canines, it would be soccer. A ball rolling around a field for 90 minutes? Dogs the world over are drooling and panting for more.
Georges is one such dog. As the YouTube video demonstrates, he gets very excited every time the ball is shown on the screen and when it is being kicked around the field. He shows little interest when there is a close-up of a player—unless said player has a ball in his hand.
His owner says that Georges will watch soccer for hours, but doesn’t care which teams wins or loses.
