Finally: the Final Semi-Finals. Or: When Will This Nightmare End?

Two important things you should be aware of today:

1) Brazil takes a spectacular dive in the world cup; tears flow now, riots to follow.


Maybe if the fans hadn’t all decided to wear elf hats…


the team would have tried a little harder.

There’s certainly enough blame to spread around (one of soccer’s virtues as I understand it) butt I blame the haters like Ann Coulter, who’s obsessed with hating on soccer: (h/t Gerard)

The same people trying to push soccer on Americans are the ones demanding that we love HBO's "Girls," light-rail, Beyonce and Hillary Clinton. The number of New York Times articles claiming soccer is "catching on" is exceeded only by the ones pretending women's basketball is fascinating.

The Oatmeal captured the sentiments of many Americans who share Ann’s soccer sensibilities:


And #2, this just in from Hollywood - the Joan Rivers Vagina Monologues, co-starring David Letterman:

That is all troops. Carry on.

Not fair to compare soccer to women's basketball. While not much of a fan (other than watching my son play those many years ago), I went to my first Los Angeles Galaxy game a couple years ago. It was actually an enjoyable experience. But women's basketball? I envision no scenario in which I will ever go to a women's basketball game. Even if you paid me. Well......perhaps if they had a league like lingerie football. :) (okay, lady FReepers, I am ready to accept your wrath for the photo)
