Soccer

Pursuant to an online suggestion, I am passing along the news that the U.S. won the World Soccer Championship. (I do not know or care who is the champ in men's soccer.) I suggest similar terminology for tennis, where only the female players are interesting.

I also note that the championship game had a nice baseball-like score, instead of living down to the old canard of being like Twilight. (They run around for two hours, nobody scores, and its billion fans insist you just don't understand.)

Once we appreciate that soccer is a sport where America's women are the stars and stop misnaming it after a more interesting sport,* we can find a place for it. (America was the only country that could crack down on FIFA, because if they threatened to take our "football" away, we'd laugh in their faces.)

*Not about gender. I prefer sports where we admit that we've evolved opposable thumbs.
