So you get beaten like a rented mule in front of an audience of 1.5 billion people. No problem. Soccer sportswriters around the world, in an apparent attempt to turn off more Americans and to make themselves seem more laughable, have just awarded the Golden Ball to the LOSING goalkeeper, Oliver Kahn. That means the person who treated him like a red-headed stepchild, Ronaldo, has been snubbed.
This is akin to awarding Mike Tyson the MVP award for the last Tyson-Lewis fight.
