This is only about soccer in general in the media. The Star Trib twitter feed asked if people wanted to see the Manchester Derby covered. I replied, "of course! it's one of the biggest sporting events of the year!" Then I got a direct message from them saying, "Looks like we lost a follower after asking, but we're all about the quality of our followers. We'll have 'em."
I thought this was pretty funny. Not just that they lost a follower, but that they were concerned with the one person. I think that is very telling about their unwillingness to take soccer seriously. I think there are so many condescending dudes who have their masculinity challenged by a sport that they aren't experts in (e.g. Reusse).
Thought I'd share that funny tid-bit.
Also, that they had to reply via direct message... as if they're doing me a favor in secret.
