One of My Favorite Phrases Is...

... Word Cup Fever. I'm not sure why. Perhaps it's the global implications -- like Spanish flu. Either way, as with the Word Baseball Classic, I'm looking forward to minimal coverage by the "Worldwide Leader in Sports" and derision from local sports radio.

I think that as the new generation of sportscasters and commentators replaces the old guard, we'll see somewhat increased coverage of the world's most popular sport, simply because this new guard might have actually played soccer in their youth. Can you see Glenn Ordway as a striker and Eddie Andleman as a wing? How about Dick Ebersol as a goalie?

I agree that soccer isn't the most fun sport to watch on television, but how is golf any better?
