America’s Favorite Pastime: Hating Soccer

, ,

AntiSoccer3

Ann Coulter celebrates the World Cup with a red-blooded, all-American anti-soccer rant.

Liberal moms like soccer because it’s a sport in which athletic talent finds so little expression that girls can play with boys. No serious sport is co-ed, even at the kindergarten level. …

I resent the force-fed aspect of soccer. The same people trying to push soccer on Americans are the ones demanding that we love HBO’s “Girls,” light-rail, Beyonce and Hillary Clinton. The number of New York Times articles claiming soccer is “catching on” is exceeded only by the ones pretending women’s basketball is fascinating.

I note that we don’t have to be endlessly told how exciting football is. …

It’s foreign. In fact, that’s the precise reason the Times is constantly hectoring Americans to love soccer. One group of sports fans with whom soccer is not “catching on” at all, is African-Americans. They remain distinctly unimpressed by the fact that the French like it. …

Soccer is like the metric system, which liberals also adore because it’s European.

Read the whole thing.

————————–

For some absolutely unaccountable reason, Coulter’s column resulted in much controversy and provoked a great deal of criticism (all from lefties writing in places like HuffPo and Talking Points Memo.

Coulter responded to her critics here.

Further proof that soccer is a game for girls: Since my column came out, a guy from the Paraguay team (Uruguay? Who cares?) was caught biting an opponent in a match. Not punching. Not a cross-body block. BITING! How long can it be until we see hair-pulling in soccer?

I’ve been sober for weeks!

I resolved to bolt down a drink each time a goal is scored . . . [sigh]

It’s foreign.

It’s slow.

The ball is slower.

The off-side rule means the D can step up and take a striker out of the game.

Flopping is for sissies.

Seems any “ouchie” causes the over-paid wimps writhe in pain on the dirt.

The only excitement comes when a player bites another.

Kudos to Ann for annoying a bunch of liberal twits (but I repeat myself again).
