Who says gringos don't like soccer?


While looking for things for my apartment in New Orleans, I saw this charming conjunto for $199.99 at Royal Furniture at 2440 St. Claude Avenue. Could this be a testament to the growing popularity of soccer in the U.S.? Most of Royal's clients are black, but I wondered if this wasn't a special order for some of the tens of thousands of Mexicans who immigrated to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. They were largely responsible for the cleanup and reconstruction of the city.
