I am a first time subscriber to ESPN the magazine. Apparently for the eighth year, in a row, the mag has made a list of "ultimate rankings" of everything in sports: big things like franchises to sutff like stadium food. I read 2 paragraphs then put down the magazine in disgust. The third paragraph started something like this: Our standings rank all MLB, NBA, NFL, and NHL teams by... Then I stopped. Really ESPN? You fooled me there. With all the beautiful coverage and amazing ratings of the World Cup, you had me thinking that soccer was actually important to you.
I just wrote all of that before I discovered some soccer in the next article: How soccer explains the sports world. Sorry ESPN. I'm just kidding. I really do love you. I just wasted a perfectly good rant on you. Sorry. You guys are great.
I love you, ESPN. Bill Simmons, their basketball #1 man, wrote a beatufil gem today about why he loved the world cup. Yes, today, when something is going on in basketball more important than their finals. I'll get a link up soon... This article just gave me an ear to ear grin.
Give it a read, you'll enjoy it.
