America and soccer: The unfamiliar sport
Why doesn’t America accept the World Cup Soccer tournament as other nations? According to taxpayer-funded NPR and its partner, liberal magazine rag The Nation, it’s because we’re all a bunch of racists and because the U.S. Teams aren’t any good at it. So sayeth Dave Zirin: Every World Cup, it arrives like clockwork. As sure as the ultimate soccer spectacle brings guaranteed adrenaline and agony | Read More »
