Despite growing legions of fans and record ratings, Americans as a whole are not exactly soccer crazy, so you will have to give beloved New York sports radio host Mike Francesa a little leeway with his questions about the World Cup.
That being said, asking St. John's soccer coach Dave Masur if soccer player's can kick with both legs, and then being so shocked that they do that he has to ask the question several more times, indicates maybe Francesa just found out what soccer was shortly before the interview.
But of course this all pales in comparison to how glorious the fake "Mike Franceser" Twitter account has been throughout the World Cup:
