The World Cup has one thing going for it

For all the abuse the World Cup is taking in the States, it does have one thing going for it - it ain't hockey.

The Stanley Cup Finals will probably have one of the worst TV audience in history when the Carolina Hurricanes finally wrap up their championship in the next few days. Supposedly, the NCAA Softball World Series had better TV ratings than the Stanley Cup Finals.

All those columnists railing against the World Cup and how soccer will never catch on in the States with anyone over 18 are right. But U.S. soccer can take solace in the fact that Gary Bettman isn't in charge of its organization.
