Ann Coulter is trending on social media networks because of a column she wrote that goes beyond simply knocking the mechanics of the game of Soccer entitled “America’s Favorite National Pastime: Hating Soccer” where she says our ‘growing interest in the sport is a sign of our moral decay.’
Soccer has struggled for years with a lack of interest from the American sports fan and has failed to garner anywhere near the interest level of the NFL, NBA, NHL or MLB. Most Americans simply haven’t made the effort to ‘get’ the game and aren’t that interested in learning the basic rules…until now.
Team USA is headed to the final round of 16, and Americans have taken notice.
Is America’s growing interest in Soccer a sign of our moral decay? Leave a comment below.
One thing’s for sure, we know where Shepard Smith stands on this issue.
