Just wondering: Are all those people in North Korea crying so hard because their “Dear Leader” has died, or have they finally realized they’ll probably never own one of those fine Lincoln limos imported from their sworn enemy and used in Kim Jong Il’s funeral procession?

For kicks, more soccer stories

What’s it going to take to get more coverage of soccer in this paper? We’ve already passed hockey in attendance, yet I see page after page of boring ice dancing with sticks. Major League Soccer grows by leaps and bounds as a competitive league every year, yet the media still regards it as some experimental project undeserving of coverage.

At the very least, show me some U.S. men’s national team news. There’s plenty going on in coach Jurgen Klinsmann’s house that’s worthy of print.
