      You should get more celebs that love the beautiful game to analyze the World Cup like Snoop and Kevin Hart did the Olympics.. They'd be honored and Americans would be captivated. Leonardo DiCaprio, OBJ, Will Ferrell, Tom Hanks. Don't stop with Chad Johnson.

      As much as I’d like to believe it would unite us… most likely the media will find a way to divide in the name of 💵

    I wish they would talk about kneeling for the national anthem. Also, I wish they talked about how many pictures there are of don trump and jeff epstein hanging out together. They were definitely best friends.
