How to Americans to watch soccer according to Sports Illustrated

Now I'm not telling you anything you don't know, but putting a hot girl front and center into sports coverage will definitely boost ratings.


And apparently, Sports Illustrated isn't too proud to drum up interest in Women's Soccer, as seen in the article "Solo named to U.S. Olympic women's team, Scurry dropped" (link)

Oh, look, there's a hot soccer chick.

Ok, I cheated, the above image is a cropped version of the original.

Here is what Sports Illustrated felt was an appropriate picture for the article.

And in a shameless pun, I hereby dub this as soccer's attempt at a "Two Point Conversion".
