No wonder it took the USA 40 more years to catch up with professional football.
At the very least, if Cristiano Ronaldo had watched this video in his youth he might not have become the FIFA Ballon d'Or winner he is today. But of course it took the USA ages to catch up, they were spending all their time on playground basketball
. Not to mention that they were using up precious minutes of sports promotional time on how to use school book priority lists...
I find these 50s documentaries fascinating mainly because of how unintentionally hilarious they have become:
A lot of the stuff in here is obviously still true today, but the actions/reactions of those horrible teens are so tame by today's standards
. If there were no butterfly effect on this hypothetical 50's trip, you could show them a few modern video clips of our finest reality TV 'stars' and wait for their reaction...
