Of all of the different storylines of the World Cup, from Drogba's arm to the spooky ball to Messi's attempts to capture his Barcelona form with the Albicelestes to the vuvuzelas to Maradona's toilet, this is the stupidest, yet we have to listen to it every four years. The only subplot that less interests me is Ronaldo's underwear advertising.

The Most Annoying Argument in the History of the Arguments
The one downside to the World Cup's arrival is the inevitable, unwinnable, hopelessly tired discussions about whether or not soccer is going to take off in the US, those who don't want soccer to take off, why it's hard to be a fan because soccer hasn't taken off, whether soccer can take off, why soccer shouldn't take off, if soccer has in fact already taken off, and derivatives thereof. Who on earth cares!?
