USA Soccer Advertising as Creative as USA Soccer Team.

There has been some clever advertising done by this year's World Cup sponsors. Then, there's this Bud print ad. Tired Chant as headline? Check. Floating FIFA World Cup trophy that US team never had a bicycle-kick chance in Hell of getting anywhere near? Check. Hot Ethnically-Mixed Babe smartly representing Bud's keen understanding that World Cup is in fact a World Event? Check.

Actually, that's not the trophy, it's an official World Cup Vibrator.

Culturally, few things are as upsetting as ugly, nationalistic Americans appearing at international sporting events. Aren't we sufficiently in-your-face with wars, cut-throat multi-nationals and hardball real politik?

The real joy of the World Cup? A second rate U.S. national team leading to the virtual invisibility of American influence which allows the rest of the world at least one global venue to spread their wings.

Good Lord, Howard Dean has invaded Copyranter.

(BTW, soccer blows because it's about as exciting to watch as paint drying on a violent hooligan's face. Oh, wait a minute. WE'RE the ugly nationalistic ones, not the goose-stepping sieg heil saluting Europeans.)

Anon: Soccer boring? Not compared to any mid-season NBA or MLB game, or even quite a few dogs the NFL wheels out every week.

A even better example of something more boring than soccer? Your life.

Slinky. Just because a bitch ain't fat don't maker her anorexic. And if not eating gets you an ass like that, I'd suggest it.

Can the rest of the world just point how glad they are that you don't understand real football?

Please stay away from our beautiful game. You'll only spoil it.

God thats such a dire ad.
Id much rather the US went through than the cheating Italians. The guy who elbowed McBride in the face deserved a good kicking, and they had to dive to get a penalty to beat the Aussies. I mean jeez...the AUSSIES!

The U.S. can't put together a team that wins American born sports (remember the Olympics and the World Baseball Classic?) and you expect us to win this stupid Eurosport? Seriously America, what happened to the country that brought us Jesse Owens in the Berlin Olympics, the Miracle on Ice and Lance Armstrong? We are becoming lazy, greedy, fat and can't play a poker game without using steroids.

After watching a referee literally giving a game away to the Italians, I can say the Europeans and their naive, ex third-world colonies can keep their dumb sport to themselves. Budweiser should stick to real sports. With scoring, and men using everything that God gave them (yes, including hands) to do it.

These comments are starting to look like talk radio.

If you think the print ad's bad, you should see the World Cup break bumpers Bud are inflicting on us over here. Fuckinawful.
