I, for one, am merely glad the US's bout of soccer-mania is over with for a while. I really don't get it. The game is so un-American. I mean, we Yanks pride ourselves on being "hands on", but soccer is a game where it's illegal to even use your hands. And what's this nil shit? We don't have nil. We have zero, zip, zilch, nothing, nada, and a goose egg, but no nil. Are we doomed to hear some future broadcaster at The Iron Bowl announce a score of "Auburn, seven - Alabama, nil?" I can already feel the earth around her begin to tremble as Bear Bryant rolls over in his grave.
