I'm kind of ambivalent about the upcoming movie Kicking & Screaming. On one hand, it stars Will Ferrell, whose antics I love. On the other hand, it centers around soccer - a sport I absolutely hate. The fact that it shares a title with a mediocre mid-90s Eric Stoltz flick, I don't really care about (although a little originality in Hollywood wouldn't hurt). Ah, hell. I'll go see it.
I wish I could find Chuck Klosterman's excellent essay on the evils of soccer ("George Will vs. Nick Hornby" from his book Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs). The closest that I can find are some excerpts here.
