Grant Wahl For President!

Of FIFA that is.  Yes, he is seriously running for the position.  He announced it on SI.com, and honestly he makes a compelling case.  On the other hand, he won me over simply by being neither Sepp Blatter nor Mohamed Bin Hammam.

Wahl will never get the job.  He knows it too; this campaign is more to make a point (and a joke) than anything else.  And bravo to him for doing it.  While I imagine that at least 95% of the football following public would vote for him, I am even more certain that 0% of the people who actually vote will do so.  Corruption breeds corruption, and no one  in FIFA will want to clean it up.

Still, one can dream . . .
