Don't Give a Damn

I'm trying to watch Sports Center tonight and instead of highlights and analysis of baseball games or the upcoming NBA semi-finals I get some loser talking about how much heart his horse has followed by a preview of this summer's World Cup. Look, soccer fills an important niche, allowing little kids who cannot afford a ball an opportunity to kick a bundle of rags in the street as well as allowing kids who get cut from basketball to earn a varsity letter. I really just wish the US would not even field a team in this and leave the populace in peace. Instead we'll get all kinds of media coverage and an embarrassing early exit. And then we'll hear about how soccer is the sport of the future in the US, just like they told us when Pele came here and he died of old age before anyone cared.

Soccer just makes me yawn.
