Then again, it totally makes sense. This is Sochi, after all.

Did Piers Morgan just reveal the ‘silver lining to a USA loss’ in the World Cup?

http://twitter.com/#!/Mr_Fastbucks/status/479729000340676608

Indeed. And, well, normally we’d be pretty pumped about that. Yeah, yeah … we know it’s soccer, but American exceptionalism is American exceptionalism!

As it turns out, though, there’s a really strong case to be made for the U.S. taking a nosedive:

http://twitter.com/#!/piersmorgan/status/479721363016806400

Ooo …

http://twitter.com/#!/BrianFaughnan/status/479721693246926848

So, if we’re understanding him correctly, there’s no chance of Piers returning to England if the U.S. does better. Is that right?

http://twitter.com/#!/lachlan/status/479721962944888833

Does that mean that if the U.S. is out of the running before England, Piers might still deport himself and leave us alone at last?

It’s worth noting they’re not exactly clamoring for Piers in England, either. So they’ve got a pretty good reason to tank it, too. The prospect of being permanently rid of Morgan is indeed a tempting one. The question is: Is it worth throwing away the World Cup?

NFL nixes fans’ protest of Phill Simms’ refusal to say ‘Redskins’

@DrewMTips Guess Simms is auditioning for the insufferable Bob Costas role for CBS.

— George M (@NJSpeechGuy) September 26, 2014

Some Washington Redskins fans hung a banner to protest Phil Simms refusal to say the team’s name. Fans are probably more annoyed by Simms’ bandwagon jumping than by his sanctimony.
