So I ask the American commentators, please stop announcing that Landon Donovan is the “all-time U.S. leading goal scorer.” He is not. With 57 international goals, he’s not even in the Top Five.

The all-time U.S. leading goal scorer is Abby Wambach, with 167 goals, followed by Mia Hamm (158), Kristine Lilly (130), Michelle Akers (105) and Tiffeny Milbrett (100). In fact, Abby Wambach is the all-time leading goal scorer in the world, among all soccer players, male or female.

Remember how Japan’s women’s soccer team won the World Cup last year? Well, apparently it wasn’t good enough for them to fly first class with the men’s team to the Olympics this week.

The women’s team was assigned seats in premium economy for the 13-hour flight to Paris while the nation’s under-23 men’s team was up front on the same flight.

“It should have been the other way around,” 2011 FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year Homare Sawa told Japanese media after arriving in the French capital. “Even just in terms of age we are senior.”

The Japan Football Association said the men fly business class to the Olympics because they are professionals.

Because they are professionals.

I dunno about you, but this sounds like some royal bullshit to me.

“I’m a naturalized Italian, but I’m from Ghana. I was abandoned by my parents and adopted by two angels. I suffer with racism everyday. I’m the first black to wear the jersey of Italy. I’m not angry, but my life experiencies make me act differently from other people. Then, try to learn more before you criticize me.” - Mario Balotelli
