Finally, the passion for soccer in America is approaching the insanity reached in Europe and South America.  From the Lincoln JournalStar, via Deadspin:

[T]he woman yelled at her 15-year-old in her car and asked her to repeat lines about improving her performance [on the pitch].  When the girl messed up the lines, she slapped her… the teen told her mom to pull over along I-80 near the downtown exit, so she did.  That’s when the girl says her mom yelled at her to get out. She did and her mom drove away.

Well, it's not a deadly soccer riot or a street-clearing hooligan brawl, but it's a start.  If we want to compete with the rest of the world in this sport, our children need to understand that soccer fucking matters

Next time, little lassie, get it right: "This is my soccer ball.  There are many like it, but this one is mine…"
