Default Mad Propers to ESPN (World Cup Related)

They have blitzed the station and their mag with ads and coverage and really tried to light a little fire under the American public concerning soccer.

It failed.

I think it's interesting to note that more US kids play soccer than any other sport. I played soccer one spring instead of baseball. You think it's boring to watch? Hell, it's boring to play.

Anyway, Romey is right. Why WOULD the US deny a sport that combines all the crazy action of 3-4 hour games that often end up in zero/zero ties? Or the drunken hooliganism, the riots, the racism, the pageantry of violence? Hard to fathom isn't it?
