Part of a Nutritious Breakfast


ESPN does it again! During a fascinating piece about A-Rod and Pete Rose’s unlikely friendship, they suddenly stop it, to cut to… soccer?!? Are you kidding me? I find it amazing that the only time ESPN covers soccer is during the World Cup and UEFA Euro Cup, but when those tournaments come around, ESPN goes all out, covering it like they know everything about it. I find it amazing that they think they are the best at covering soccer. They’re not. I don’t know who is, but it’s not them. No one in America even likes Soccer. And yet ESPN covers it like it’s the World Series. Now I’ve been a supporter of ESPN in recent days, but there is nothing here to support. A disgrace. Terrible. ESPN needs to find it’s limits, learn them, and know them. If not, they’re kidding their fans, and ultimately themselves.
