The Pride of Bayport

Being a resident of the state of Wisconsin, I was wondering if the rise of Jay DeMerit was going to get any play during the Confederations Cup. It's not often that a player from hardcore football country, that didn't even get drafted by MLS ends up playing in a major international tournament.

As it turns out, the New York Times has taken notice. Technically DeMerit is from just outside Green Bay, but the article is still a fun read.
