    The best part of winning a championship in an American league or as an American national team is getting “the call” from the President. Well, that might not be true. Beating up on Japan early in the first half, then lifting that trophy at the end of the match were both probably better parts for […]

    Hey, did you watch the USA beat Japan in the finals of the World Cup yesterday? Not the soccer World Cup. The other one—the World Cup of Softball. No, of course you didn’t watch that!

    You probably didn’t ask for some US Soccer Twitter beef, but we have some for you anyway.

    For everyone out there who thought that the Brits were a proper, uptight lot: They’re actually terrible perverts. Look no further than the slogan those deviants created for their female soccer team. Disgusting. Ok, so there’s no way that the intended interpretation was supposed to be gross, but ‘come one’!
