I saw some kids today playing baseball on the street with their Dad and again, in the park some more. When that turns into soccer, when the average white suburban kid is playing soccer on the street in the summer and playing kick (not throw) with the Dad, then the US has a chance to win the world cup. No, German imports won't win us a world cup, even if Julian Green or Zelalem turn out to be stars. No, it's not enough that the ethnic immigrant population is playing pick up soccer. The average kid needs to be doing it, in the suburbs, in the ghettos, in the barrios, everywhere. Then the country will be ready.
