True Soccer Anthems are Catchy, Curse-Laden, and Mean-Spirited

Don't be alarmed to turn on ESPN this month and hear some witty Englishman declare the arc of a round ball through space "inspired," "creative" or "clever." It's World Cup season -- the month-long Super Bowl-meets-Olympics-meets-Mardi Gras of that "beautiful…

Year End, God Save the Scene

God Save the Scene
