Seth Vertelney Writes : As soccer gains more visibility in the United States, an increased onus is placed on media outlets to provide coverage of this weird and wacky new sport.
The result: more ignorant Americans saying dumb things about soccer! Because it was a World Cup year, 2010 provided an especially fertile breeding ground for misguided, inane, and erroneous commentary.
As the old cliché goes: It’s difficult to know whether to laugh or to cry. I, for one, choose to laugh; in no small part because it’s provided a treasure-trove of blissful ignorance for my year-end Media Microscope mélange of morons.
