What They're Saying: Ed Foster-Simeon

MOST COMMENTED

"A few million Americans disagree. Slowly, but surely though, soccer has grown on us as a nation. Why? A changing America has become younger and more diverse, and those two demographics simply love soccer more than their parents."

-- Ed Foster-Simeon, president of the U.S. Soccer Foundation, in an editorial in response to conservative columnist Ann Coulter's anti-immigrant remarks bashing soccer as low scoring and a sport about which no one cared. (AP)

    I am tired of hearing about this. I'm 58 and have been a zealous fan for 4 decades.

    Oh? So, Coulter said that no one whose great-grandmother (my editing) was born here likes soccer? My great-great-great-great-great-greatgrandparents were born here. (I know, I know. I'm preaching to the choir, here.)

    Hey, my people were here in 1624 stealing the land from the original inhabitants so my pedigree (mongrel thought it may be with that Irish grandmother)is as least as good as Ann Coulter's, and I've been following the game since I fell in love with it during the 1966 World Cup. Ann's just a crazy old white lady who's angry that black folks don't have to call her "Missus" anymore.
