In Defense of the Father, His Son

I don't know which was more shocking: that Sports Illustrated dedicated five pages to the U.S. Soccer team including the quote...
"All the f------ experts in America, everybody who thinks they know everything about soccer, they can all look at the score tonight, and let's see what they have to say now, all right?" said an emotional [Michael] Bradley [who's papa is team coach] after the [Egypt] game. "Nobody has any respect for what we do, for what goes on on the inside [of the team], so let them all talk now."

... or the facts that the story ran before, and all the f'in experts in America were right to question the team after getting drubbed by Brazil and It-lee until, yesterday's reign over the plain Spain. (A defensive marvel. Well done, fellas.)
