ASN Morning Read: JK Tweets Are the Best Tweets
What's cooking in the world of U.S. soccer? Lots, actually. From Jurgen Klinsmann's bakery tweets to Megan Rapinoe's appearance in ESPN: The Magazine's Body Issue, there's plenty to see and discuss.
Presented without comment:
ESPN The Magazine featured Megan Rapinoe in its body issue. She becomes the first openly LGBT athlete to appear on its pages.
Never too much soccer:
"A crowd of soccer fans on Sunday went silent in the middle of a game and collectively took part in a poignant gesture honoring a referee killed in an on-field altercation last week. The Detroit City Football Club is known for its frenzied fans, but they put a momentary halt to soccer-crazed shenanigans just before halftime Sunday in a game against the Cincinnati Saints played at Cass Tech High School. They quietly raised red cards at the 44th minute, paying tribute to John Bieniewicz, a 44-year Westland man who died July 1, two days after being struck in the neck area as he attempted to raise a red card to signify a player's ejection during a recreational adult-league soccer match in Livonia."
