Intervention Staged For Woman Binge Watching Soccer

NEW YORK - "We just want you to know, that we care for you and we love you and we miss you," stated the friends and family of 29 year old Carla Rast of the Bed-Stuy neighborhood in Brooklyn.

"This is because we love you and we are concerned and you haven't been by the bar recently. Have you tried drinking? That's a more socially acceptable habit."

"This is because we love you and we are concerned and you haven't been by the bar recently. Have you tried drinking? That's a more socially acceptable habit."

Ms. Rast admitted that she has been binge watching the Copa America, Euro 2016, NWSL, MLS, and US Open Cup from her couch for the past month but claimed that it wasn't an addiction as her family finally staged an intervention to keep her from slipping further down the rabbit hole of feckless debauchery.

"CAN'T YOU SEE THAT YOU ARE KILLING YOUR FATHER?!" stated Paula Rast, "You can't just lie here watching soccer for a month! You have a job, you have bills, you need to leave the couch and this apartment and start living again!"

"Your nephew just wants to see your face again," stated sister Denise to Ms. Rast as she mindlessly clicked on a replay of the recent Western New York Flash v Boston Breakers game on YouTube. 

"MY GOD, CARLA, can't you go five minutes without a FIX!" stated brother Brian as he stormed out of the room.

Reportedly, Ms Rast stated that she is going to give up the habit, just as soon as the Euro's are over and the US Open Cup next round is finished.

The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Ms. Rast relapses and ends up in rehab when the Olympic soccer tournament starts.
