  • Tim Howard Morgan: Soccer finally over for USA

    Well, the World Cup is over. OK, it’s still going on, but the US is out of it. We can all go back to ignoring soccer again, and I promise you that’s what will happen. It’s the same thing with tennis. Wimbledon is going on right now, so tennis is getting marginally more attention than it normally gets. Once Wimbledon is finished, tennis will join soccer somewhere on the back page of the sports section alongside rowing.
