Soccer Deal Bad For Sox Fans

Well, now it's official. New England Sports Ventures (read: The NOG) has purchased the Liverpool franchise in England's Premier soccer league. Great!

So, instead of investing in an upgrade of the also-ran Red Sox, they will now be pre-occupied with corner kicks and boring 'nil-nil' ties.

Let's hope the Red Sox Medical Team doesn't have to diagnose all the fake injuries on the soccer "pitch". They did such a great job for Boston in 2010, they may be at a total loss across the pond. I mean, how do you distinguish between a legitimate injured rib and a phony injured shin? Oh, the humanity!

Bottom line: This deal—like the NASCAR one—is flat-out dumb.
