The excellent blog Copyranter points out this special promotion for helping support U.S. Soccer. Of course, this raises the question: If you are wearing a wristband to support U.S. Soccer, is it possible to wear it in a non-ironic fashion? Isn't it kind of like wearing a Eddie Griffin jersey right now?

By the way, we have a hard time paying money to "support" something that has the Nike logo on it. We have nothing against Nike, but once Nike's got its swoosh all over something, how much "support" does that something really need?

Remember, though: We did tie Italy, and they're in the Finals. We can say that, anyway. Not worth wearing a wristband for, but it's something.
