Soccer,the World Cup, and Ann Coulter - take 2

Once more, I find myself reading an Ann Coulter´s article. I shall blame insomnia again.

Oh dear..., where to begin...

This time, the lack of respect for fellow commentators is inexcusable. From name naming, to plain simply insulting, her so called “opinion” article is simply a mediocre example of her profession. And this is the less atrocious part.

At this point, I also believe that Ann Coulter is a poor example of the female sex. Apparently, in her opinion the female sex is unable to properly play any sports. She justifies this explaining that soccer, after all ‘is a game for girls’. Why? Apparently for Ann Coulson, a player biting another player is a poor excuse of male expression, that is, there was no punching or even a cross-body block. I don’t even know how to begin to criticize this, for what she has written is so unreasonable. But let’s review the facts, Luiz Suarez, a Uruguayan player, when biting his counter-part from the Italian team, Giorgio Chiellini shows the most appalling sportsmanship behaviour. FIFA,  rightly so, suspended Luiz Suarez of all football-related activity for four months. Secondly, let’s keep the punching and the cross-body block at their respective sports, boxing and American football. And above all, let’s not confuse good sportsmanship behaviour with playing any sport. One thing is throwing a good punch while boxing; another and completely different thing is punching a player while paying basketball, or football, or baseball! NBA, FIFA or Major League Baseball would never support this kind of behaviour or any other Institution for that matter. 

Apparently besides bragging about injuries, Ann Coulter now also brags about heat-stroke deaths of NFL players. An injury is not enough to prove any sport as a manly sport, only death now would do it. Let’s make this clear, death in any sport is not a manly thing, and is far from a positive thing, and these tragedies do not constitute any evidence of a more manly sport. They show  unhealthy practice routines as these should only happen within  certain threshold temperatures. This is a no-brainer. So, any heat-break is more than recommended. I would like to know if Ann Coulter is able to run 62miles facing 32 degrees or more. Oh wait, Ann Coulter is a female. Of course she is unable to do so. After all, only NFL players are manly enough to support this kind of heat pressures. And then die of it.

Ann Coulter’s ignorance at this stage is more than appalling, is a tragedy.  Her lack of understanding, her appalling lack of judgment is sad really. I truly believe that Ann Coulter in incapable of understanding and truly embrace any sporting event. Simply because Ann Coulter is incapable to understand good sportsmanship. And the complexities of scoring systems! Ann Coulter is unable to understand the scoring system of the World Cup, only this way it is justifiable the fact she believes that any team is a winner team. I doubt that she understands that the scoring system of the group stage is different from the subsequent knock-out stages.  And since she fails to understand that, I doubt that she is able to understand any other scoring system...from any other competition.

I am really surprised that Ann Coulter mentioned the Ryder Cup, Davis Cup or even the America´s Cup. All of these competitions are far too boring according to Ann Coulter´s set of values.  At any of these events, nor a punching or a cross-body block would ever happen. I am fairly sure that these should be classified as ‘girls sports’. And I won’t even begin to mention the complexities of scoring at these competitions! Is Ann Coulter able to follow these without getting a meltdown? Oh wait. She would be far to bored at this stage, so no harm done.  All of these competitions involve much more than ‘circumnavigating a big field’ in order to score, and in much more time...without any cross-body blocks. Or any heat-stroke deaths. 

I have to say now that would feel insulted if Ann Coulter would follow anything that I would show any appreciation. In the end it is good that Ann Coulter does not appreciate soccer. It is good that she has much more to do, and to practice, as punching and cross-body block a NFL player. Oh wait. She cannot do that. After all she is just a girl. She is only allowed to be watching some ballet dance.
