Post Alert

As with Orange 44's running diary of the National Spelling Bee a couple days ago, we have on our hands another post that deserves instant, solo attention.

Brian from MGoBlog offers a defense of soccer that is among the best pieces of sports writing I've read this, or any, year. It manages to be both thorough and concise at the same time, covering every major sport with the fluid touch only the most thoughtful and talented writers can draw on.

There is a reason that Brian is one of the most-cited, oft-praised sports bloggers in this little college sports universe that we traverse. He is, I think more and more every day, the best sports writer I know.

Go enjoy.
