No Time for Soccer 

It has been noted ad nauseam that Americans just haven’t been all that into this year’s (or any year’s) World Cup soccer tournament, currently being held in Germany.

Reuters has piled on now too, deriding American soccer interest, claiming that, “whereas spontaneous soccer breaks out on Rio and Cape Town beaches … you will not see youngsters kicking around a ball on the streets of Philadelphia or Memphis.”

Oh, and we suppose it was something other than our city’s rampaging soccer hooligans that tore down Crump Stadium last week?
