"Any growing interest in soccer can only be a sign of the nation's moral decay."--Ann Coulter, 6/25/14.
Apparently, Ms. Coulter never played the game, and doesn't understand its global appeal.
Moral decay? Has she lost her mind?
Personal note: I played one year of soccer at a private academy in North Troy. It was the school's 1st year of sports, and we only played in 2--basketball being the other. Our team did better at soccer than at hoops, let's put it that way. I played fullback, and didn't get much credit. So you'd understand my taking offense to Ms. Coulter's lame remarks. Has she not heard of Pele? Giorgio Chinaglia? There are professional soccer leagues in this country, with some of the players in those leagues participating in the current World Cup tournament.
Leave it to Ann Coulter to put her foot in her mouth and expose herself as being ignorant about one of the world's most popular sports. Maybe she should get together with those other short-fused blowhards, Donald Trump & Alec Baldwin. Whomever runs out of hot air first loses. Wouldn't that be fun?
Suffice it to say, Ann Coulter earned herself a Dunce Cap this week. Throwing cold water on this country's advancement in the tournament only proves the only game she knows how to play is tiddly-winks, if that.
