Let’s forego the obvious fact that prancing around doing nothing more than kicking a ball is an unacceptable for any male over the age of 7.
No, there are very real reasons why soccer should be on the sh*t list of any Kansas City, Missouri resident. So while the dorks at the P&L District will be on centerstage as ESPN records reaction shots for all the world to see; Let’s consider some very real reasons why KCMO residents should be pissed off about World Cup Fan Fair:
1. Soccer Screwed Over Kansas City. Did we already forget that The Wizards left South Kansas City when they skipped over to KCK as part of STAR bond take away?
2. The racial aspect of soccer: Sure, people might love short brown people on TV but the P&L District still has a reputation of keeping those folks outside. Of course, there is some progress on this front but I’m still bitter.
3. Football in this town will never mean soccer. If Tea Party conservatives are to be believed, the Midwest rejects European Socialism and those big ass soccer crowds all singing the same obscure folk song represent an essential element of that culture.
For these reasons and many more.
The Soccer Dorks in the living room don’t really represent this town but mainstream media recording smiling middle-class white people celebrating and ignoring everything else about Kansas City is the same old game that has always been played.
