SportsCenter Commercial Illustrates Soccer To A Tee (Video)

Perhaps one of the biggest knocks on the game of soccer is the excessive diving.  Even the sport’s most loyal fans can’t seem to stand the sight of its players flipping, flopping and rolling all over the pitch following the slightest bit of contact, or in some cases, no contact at all.

Therefore, it is rather surprising to see ESPN’s SportsCenter advertise the upcoming Women’s World Cup with a commercial of one of their anchors diving after being bumped at their office in Bristol.  Is this supposed to get me excited about women’s soccer?  If it is, it isn’t working.
