Paul Kafasis writing on One Foot Tsunami:
Following another crushing defeat for a US national soccer team, this time in the Women's World Cup, many fans are no doubt feeling burned. It seems like every time we start to care about soccer, it spits directly into our collective face, while handing us another devastating loss. So, in the spirit of sour grapes and being a true Ugly American, I present my four-point plan to fix soccer. I wholeheartedly agree with points 1, 2, and 4. Not sure about number 2. You may commence yelling at me now, soccer fans. Wake me up when its real football season, in the meantime I'll go back to watching baseball.
