New Post: Soccer Elections Results– Who wins?

By, Kyle Gibson

Normally, you don’t tell anyone who you vote for. Americans, who post pictures of every meal they eat and Facebook every time their stomach hurts, don’t like to mention who they choose to lead the country for the immediate future.

However, yesterday I unveiled the soccer election and today I am going to unveil my ballot choices, along with the help of celebrity guest voter….my dad, Richard!

Don’t forget to post your own ballot in the comments.
