Bend it like what's his name

Pele came to play in America, and he was going to single-handedly raise the popularity of soccer to the same level here as the rest of the world.

Brandi Chastain whipped off her shirt and was thereby going to single-handedly raise the popularity of soccer to the same level here as the rest of the world.

The MLS came along and that was going to single-handedly raise the popularity of soccer to the same level here as the rest of the world.

Mr. Spice is here to single-handedly raise the popularity of soccer to the same level as the rest of the world. For a quarter of a billion dollars.

I'm pretty fired up that the first NFL pre-season weekend is less than a month away. Soccer? Er, not so much.

Perhaps I just don't understand the intricacies involved in playing to a nil-nil tie.

Don't the rules of soccer require that its popularity be raised single-footedly?
