A intelligent, well-written, American blog about soccer?

"Life is too short to miss any games to be played this summer in South Africa. A sad fact of human existence is that an average life seldom contains more than 20 World Cups—our games are tragically numbered."  

A well-written, intelligent American blog on soccer?  Although it is difficult to conceive of something that would appear to be such a mass of contradictions, it does exist.  It's the World Cup blog from The New Republic Magazine, featuring: 
- passionate articles on MessiAnyone but Brazil, and The Austere Beauty of Italy
- and a twice daily round-up of World Cup soccer links.
