Manchester United and Real Madrid to play in US

Not really, and who freakin' cares.

This is no shot at the most popular sport in the world, but here in the good old US of A soccer is on ESPN 9 at freaking midnight. The reference is to the NFL trying to promote "our" product overseas where it will always be second best. I said ours because it is us, the U.S. fan who made this sport. And now a bunch of corporate suits think it's best interest is in a global capacity.

I read one good sugestion on how to protest this move, and I would like to share it with everyone. The day the game is played no one watches it on tv. Simple enough. Maybe it's only because now it's my personal interest with the Saints that I take such offense to this, who knows. If I want to watch a bunch of people (with names I can't pronounce) playing a sport that I'm slowly losing interest in, I'll watch basketball or baseball. Leave the National Football League.... well national.
