Voetbal is voor losers

Met het beste bruggetje sinds de boterbloemen van Philip Freriks (“Speaking of crimes against humanity: soccer” na een Hitlersnorren-item) zet Stephen Colbert de toon. Voetbal is voor losers. Een slaapverwekkend, on-Amerikaans, té simplistisch tijdverdrijf voor kleine kinderen. Dat de wereld buiten de VS wél blind meeholt in de voetbalhype doet daar niets aan af. “Foreign countries wear nuthugger jeans. That doesn’t mean we need to be doing it over here.”
