A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

James Taranto, the author of The Wall Street Journal's "Best of the Web Today" is not much of a soccer fan, and it shows.


America woke up Wednesday to one of its greatest soccer wins," the Associated Press reports from Suwon, South Korea. "The U.S. soccer team shocked heavily favored Portugal at the World Cup, earning a 3-2 victory and breaking a five-match Cup losing streak dating back to 1994."

This just goes to show what a lame sport soccer is. A victory over Portugal is a big deal? Portugal--a country that hasn't been a major power since the 16th century?


So, for the sport to be any good, the USA has to be the best at it? An American winning the Olympic marathon wouldn't be a big deal because the ones who win marathons like clockwork -- the Kenyans -- aren't a world power?

Simply silly.

I'll admit I stayed up late last night to watch the USA vs. Portugal game -- and it was a great game. Go USA!
