    interesting little piece. Having nothing to do with Alecko, I find this paragraph amusing, especially since it is in a NY newspaper...

    The Times' coverage of soccer is a puzzle to me. I like this kind of mid-week article, but on Sunday I couldn't find a single word about the United - Metros game. They had a couple of stories about the WWC, and must have thought that was the soccer budget for the day. But there was an important match at home -- and not a word. They did have stories about the NBA, whose season hasn't started yet, and fishing.

    No one ever said the New York Times isn't biased.

    Reading the Times for its sports coverage is like watching UPN for its high quality TV shows. :)

    It was wire copy in the edition I saw up here. I'm not sure where their other writers were but Jere Longman (and possibly George Vescey too) was in Columbus for USA-North Korea.

    If the NYT sports editors were as good as the writers I might actually buy the paper. But four or five pages in the back of the business section during the week is really awful.
