Glenn Beck hates soccer. So says, Glenn:
"It doesn't matter how you sell it to us. It doesn't matter how many celebrities you get. It doesn't matter how many bars open early. It doesn't matter how many beer commercials they run. We don't want the World Cup. We don't like the World Cup. We don't like soccer. We want nothing to do with it. You can package it any way -- you can spend all kinds of money. You can force it on our television sets. We will not enjoy the World Cup."
"I don't get the baseball thing, but the soccer thing, I hate it so much -- probably because the rest of the world likes it so much, and they riot over it, and they continually try to jam it down our throat."
No one's trying to force anything down your throat, Glenn. (Insert joke here____.)
Once again, Glenn failed to look at the facts before he opened up his fat yap. Of course, soccer isn't as popular in the US as football and baseball are, but that doesn't mean that soccer has no fans here. But this really has nothing to do with sports, and Glenn knows it. It has everything to do with what Glenn views as a multi-cultural, international threat on his idea of American culture. In reality, this has much more to do with the fact that Glenn couldn't hustle his fat ass up and down a field for 90 minutes, or even 2 for that matter. Therefore, Glenn simply views it as a threat to his self-perceived manhood, so he has to make up for his tender ego by lashing out at the rest of the world and soccer fans worldwide.
So, here's a tip for Glenn Beck, his braindead clones, and everyone else who hates soccer - if you don't want to watch it, turn your television off.
If the US wins the World Cup, how much would you like to bet that Glenn won't display even the smallest ounce of more feigned patriotism?
