SI wastes their soccer coverage for the year

Soccer in the USA struggles enough without Sports Illustrated blowing their soccer attention span on perhaps the dumbest, least interesting quote from the EPL's dumbest, least interesting player.

I guess a thoughtful, long-form essay would have been too much work, right? Yeah, best to stick to the humorless tangle of words uttered by Philip Neville.

To whoever said that US sports writers don't care about our sport: consider this proof that they do! Well, at least when it suits their filler material at the front of the mag.

Peter King does not comprehend this soccer you speak of...NO ONE DENIES THIS!

Third of a page no less. Hilarious.

B-B-B-B-B-But Sportscenter had two sack-ah highlights in their Top Ten this morning. America really does love this sport!

Although I'm pretty sure they only ran the David Villa highlight just so we could hear the Spanish announcer scream "gol!" for twenty seconds. Because that's original.

Neil Everett also called Lazio 'Latizio.'

Stuart Scott added "Latizio is off the hizio."
