In re­sponse to Kathy Lette’s ar­ti­cle Off­sideCall (June 28-29), the World Cup has had only one im­pact on our fam­ily life. It has pro­vided a new cure for any in­som­nia we may have other­wise suf­fered through in the past cou­ple of weeks. Any time we have trou­ble get­ting to sleep, just put the soc­cer on and we are in the land of nod within min­utes.

You see real men don’t watch the World Cup — in fact real men don’t play or watch soc­cer at all.

What is manly about rolling around on the ground like you have been shot when­ever some­one breathes on you? And what is manly about bit­ing your op­po­nent just be­cause they get to the ball be­fore you?

I feel ex­tremely sorry for Kathy — it sounds as though she has never met a real man in her en­tire life. And sorry Kathy, I’m taken! Si­mon We­gener Par­adise
