BR - "Dad, why don't you wear your U.S. soccer shirt to the game this weekend," my seven-year-old soccer-playing daughter asked as I prepared to cover the United States men's national team in a warm-up match for the 2014 World Cup.
"Well, because it's unprofessional," I replied. "You aren't supposed to root for the team you are covering."
"Why not," she answered. "Don't you love America?"
