E.H.T. (Everybody Hates This)
Lots of chatter on the Twitters and message-boreds* about the this SFW Playboy photo, right? Soccer folk are talking all kinds of noise about how it's wrong and disrespectful and in poor taste and a shame and lame and not cool and offensive and yadda yadda yadda.
Obviously my opinion is irrelevant to whatever you're feeling but I'm honestly surprised by how many of us --easily the most globally connected sports fans in America-- are shocked/offended/surprised by a fairly tame photo like this. Apparently fewer of us are reading the foreign press these days.
*Not a real word.
