US Soccer Team Insults US Troops!


When US troops stationed in Guatemala turned out to welcome the US Soccer team into the country, the team walked right past them without even acknowledging the presence.

Understandably, the troops felt insulted, and their families are speaking up angrily on facebook while metrosexual hipster scum over at TMZ are taking the opportunity to talk more trash about the troops.

The team has half-assedly apologized as is usual in these cases, explaining that the players "didn't know what the protocol was" in this situation.  This is conceivably true, as usually the only people ever happy to see US soccer players are the other team, not surprising given that their greatest skill is at faking an injury to draw a foul call.

Regardless, it's interesting that these hip, sophisticated urban athletes are unable to figure out a "protocol" that ordinary Americans figure out in airports and restaurants every damn day.

In any case, no sports organization that supports American soccer will ever see another dime from me.
