MOST COMMENTED

“You should never underestimate the allure of daytime drinking. If you’re in a bar at 7 in morning with a pint of Guinness, you have a social problem. If you are in a bar at 7 in the morning with that same pint of Guinness and Chelsea is on TV, you’re a football fan.”

-- Soccer journalist Roger Bennett on the early start of the games in bars as a reason for the popularity of soccer in New York -- in particular the popularity of the English Premier League among New York literati. (New York Times)

    That piece must be the worst publicity possible for the Premier League's US marketing drive - most people who see that something is trending in Brooklyn are going to run in the opposite direction. East coast literati wearing Liverpool away shirts and insisting that soccer is called 'football'? Get me to the rodeo!

    Sadly, there are untold numbers of hipsters in the cities of America who want to be just like them.
