by Ghana, by God! This is Exhibit #1 why Americans do not like soccer. Ghana? GHAAAAAAANA!!?? Have they even discovered the joys of toilet paper and cooking their meat before they eat it? They only have approximately 24 million people. And about 2% of those have AIDS. Don’t blame me, I’m just quoting the information that the CIA has up on their webpage about Ghana.
America loves a winner. If our soccer team can’t even beat Ghana’s team, that is all the proof we need that our team is not a winner. Sure, we wanted them to win. We cheered loudly when they scored that dramatic come back victory.
But we did not get too emotionally invested. Because we knew–we knew–that the best and the brightest Americans play real football, not soccer. And they play baseball and basketball and hockey and tennis, almost anything but soccer.
That’s all they do in most of those third-world hell holes. They grow up with only soccer balls and elephant dung to kick around. Of course they are going to beat our team. Sad but that is reality. So I’m so over it, and now I’m off to play in a Hold ’em tournament.
