View from the Farce Side: Make it a Happy Meal for Everyone!

As a child in England, the occasional trip to a fast-food joint was quite the treat. The gaudy logos, the illuminated menu board, the unique smells and tastes, the excitement! It seems strange now, looking back on that experience, to consider that the only way it could be achieved was by walking in to the restaurant. Yes, you read that right: walking.

Something odd is happening on the American sporting landscape. According to the most recent surveys shared out by the New York Times, Forbes and Bloomberg, participation in American football, baseball and basketball are steadily declining. Conversely, participation continues to rise dramatically in rugby, lacrosse and, most pleasingly from my point of view, soccer (aka actual football). The especially encouraging news is that the growing interest in soccer can been seen at all levels of the game.
