Jon Stewart to get soccer award

Philadelphia is going to be a very busy soccer town this weekend. Not only will they have the SuperDraft, the will also host the National Soccer Coaches Association of America's 59th annual meeting.

During this meeting they will give The Daily Show's and 2006 Oscars' host Jon Stewart (pictured an honorary all-American award. Stewart played soccer during his college years at William and Mary where an award titled the "Leibo" is now given out annually in honor of Stewart. It is given to the member of the men's soccer team who experiences the most personal growth and provides the most laughs for his teammates.

Perhaps US Soccer should try and talk Stewart into giving some commentary during the World Cup.
