One Game Changes Everything.

In this case...40%.

Which game changed everything for U.S. soccer, baseball or American football?

The price drop has more to do with universal soccer apathy, proven by the use of a "support Jefferson High's swim team car wash" approach in the first place.

GOOOOO TEAM!

The way the US team played, they should give those fuckers away.

anon - that implies soccer had to be established here in the first place to be changed. Football, baseball, hoops and hockey have all had a stranglehold on the collective sporting conscious for a long time here. Soccer can’t even make a dent.

Right now, all soccer is just one more thing that moms have to drive their kids to in this country.

Which is ok, cuz then we get to make ads about minivans to sell to them.

;-p

i'm not sure where this photo was taken, but i doubt it's authenticity. seems unlikely that the folks at nike would make--or allow any retailers to display--signage with such a distorted swosh.

if real, hilarious, and good insight - both by you and the people who directed me to you...deadspin.

It is absolutely authentic and undoctored—taken in a storefront window in Pa. near the Delaware Water Gap. Doubt if Nike knows about the poster. The wristbands they certainly do.

I also doubt that it was taken in Authenti City.


signage with such a distorted swosh

...or all-caps, multicolored Cooper Black Italic. Yikes.

Ha! Someone actually called me out. That's actually just some model from the Polo website. It looks strangely just like me, except for the fucking 1500 dollar deerskin poncho.

americans don't like soccer - my apologies - "football" - (ball comes into contact with foot, end of story)- because they need a game with a score.

my question - what happened to all those kids who played AYSO? Have you ever tried to sit through an entire baseball game?

AYSO = anyone with a pulse plays. Basically, it's for kids who didn’t make the kickball team.
