The US media is waking up to soccer, maybe.
"Ronaldinho's juggling act" in USA Today is a typical US-style story:
A little more than a year ago, he fathered a son with a Brazilian dancer. He has since split with the boy's mother and admitted paternity. The boy continues to live with his mother in Brazil. Ronaldinho's role is unclear because he declines to discuss the matter, preferring to keep it private.
They try to make something controversial instead of chasing the real story. The real story is that Ronaldinho is the best player in world, and Brasil will be hexa-campeon!
