After a long, hard-fought battle, Germany took home its fourth World Cup. It's the first time Germany has taken the cup since 1990, when the West German team won with a 1-0 victory over Argentina.  After losing, riot rocks Buenos Aires last Sunday night, just as Brazilian fans burnt buses in Sao Paulo after being defeated against Germany 7-1, deeply wounding Brazilian soccer pride. The World Cup goes to the only one final winner in competition. If you lose, you're out. Then why are people so mad?   I think violence in aftermath implies not only the anger over losing in national rivalry but also the struggle for hegemonic masculinity. The picture for men has changed dramatically over the past 50 years. More women than men are going to college, and the economy is moving away from jobs that traditionally favored men, like manufacturing and mining. Attitudes have also changed on the social front, with young men having more egalitarian attitudes toward women and expectations of being involved fathers. There used to be issues coming from feminism activists. But now we can even see the first International Conference on Men's Issues held in Detroit. All these social phenomena represent the crisis of hegemonic masculinity.  Unlike the Olympics, the soccer has its origin in England's repulsion of Danish invaders during Victorian colonialism; it makes sense to regard that it has qualities of violence and warfare in its tone.  If the scoring and winning allow men to exert manliness in a non-war setting, the World Cup represents the venue for the assertion of  masculinity.

First came the Koreans, followed by the dog lovers, the cricket players, the wine aficionados, the food trucks and antique cars... the park has gradually lived up to the original vision that planners had of creating the equivalent of a Central Park for Bergen County.
