This American Game

Check out this Nike ad:

Now that the US Men's National Team has advanced to World Cup 2006 being held in Germany, Nike will proceed to plaster the advertising (hype) on how we have made the game our own.

We do have a good team.
They are actually getting competitive on the world stage.

But I cringe at what the marketing effort will do.

We do not need American braggadocio to kindle our opponent's fire.
It will be tough enough as it is.

I prefer to talk softly and let the performance in the game speak for itself.

What do you think?

The US team is the toughest in years and they have good chance. Last World Cup, we saw countries like Turkey, Japan, and Korea emerging as contenders. Just last year, Greece made a monumental victory to capture the Euro Cup. This is an indication that superstars may not be a requirement. Championships are won out of teamwork, defense, and heart.
