Yankspoitation: Is It a Real Thing or Something That's Just Made Up Like "Free Speech?"
While watching this clip of Jozy Altidore from the La Liga site I started wondering if people in other countries obsess over their national team players who live on the fringes of their club as mush as we do in America. I love me some Jozy, Gooch and Charlie Davis but let's be honest here, those guys get tons of ink and MB's dedicated to them for guys that ride pine more often than they run on the field.
Maybe it's just because they're American that they get all this attention; Lord knows I would never visit the La Liga site if there wasn't something about one of my people on there. It's probably all down to that most sinister scourge of the internet, page views, and we're just targeted in some sort of international "Yanksplotaition" plot designed to boost traffic. Like K.C.'s Sunil Chetri signing but to the tenth power. I'm not a big conspiracy guy I just have a hard time believing that, say, Andrew Boyens is getting mad write ups in New Zealand while being a forth stringer in New York.
Somebody tell me, am I way off here?
