Alternate title: No, but this is why a lot of conservatives can't stand NPR.
Do we have to politicize everything? I don't like soccer, does that have to make me a racist? There are a lot of sports I don't like and a lot I do. Hell, it can't be that soccer is boring because I'm addicted to golf. I just don't care for it.
I don't mind the World Cup coverage, either. It makes no difference to me at all. I'd like to see the US do well out of national pride, but I'm not going to care nearly as much as I do for the Olympics or the Ryder Cup or the President's Cup. It would be pretty cool for South Africa to win it this year, too.
Can't we just enjoy or ignore sports anymore? Does it have to be politicized?
