Soccer for Pittsburghers

The Post-Gazette again did its best to marginalize Western Pennsylvania's large and growing soccer-loving population (and yes, I mean that last phrase seriously). I'm in Germany right now, and it isn't just bars that have large TV screens set up for public viewing. It is difficult to find a eating or drinking venue of any kind, anywhere, that is not set up for soccer - fussball, as the sport is known here.

For Americans, in Germany I have found the answer, the thing that will finally persuade the mainstream American jockocracy that soccer is worth the while of the beer-loving, SUV-driving stereotypical sportsman:

The Klokicker.

It is a urinal sieve that lets a man score goals while he pees. At last, a soccer-related product that Steelers fans -- the men, at least -- can relate to. Pass the Iron!
