....many out there are probably eager for the start of football season. So here's George Will's perspective on that sport:

Add "rampant crime and fathering of illegitimate children by players at all levels" and "theft of private funds for lavish temples to this idol", and yes, Will is right.
For all its faults, soccer at least gets rid of most of the violence (except by the fans) and the committee meetings.
