Here's a reason to love soccer.

The US Open Cup. Check out the bracket. There are amateur teams facing professional teams here, including what I take to be an adult club team (Dallas Roma) taking on an MLS team (Chivas USA).

How cool would it be if an American Legion team beat the Everett AquaSox, Altoona Curve, and Durham Bulls in sucession to set up a game against the Chicago Cubs in a one-and-done tournament?

I love the FA Cup, and I love this for similar reasons.
