Soccer is Soooooo In Right Now
I come to you this morning with a heavy heart. But I come to you with good news. I come to you to tell you that the secret is out and soccer, as a niche sport in America, is over. It is no longer 'our little secret'. With Abel Xavier all over TMZ,and every basketball player this side of West 4th St. trying to be the next Messi comes word that a few of the New England Patriots --most prominently Randy Moss-- are trying to better their football game by bettering their futbol game.
I tell you again boys & girls, you who have been down for so long, it's over. Reading this article felt exactly like the moment you saw the jock-rocking school bully wearing a Nirvana shirt; it was cool that they were getting an audience, but you kinda knew that audience wouldn't have the same exuberence for "Floyd the Barber" as it did for "Smells Like Teen Spirit".
And for what it's worth, if I'm Bob Kraft I would glady offer private training with the Revs for any interested Pats players, in exchange for the Pats teaching the Revs how to leave a championship game with a hat on thier heads.
