When was the last time you saw people at parks, bars, and other gatherings in
almost every city (in the middle of the day) gather around a screen to watch any
sport? Pretty sure the numbers are even more than the super bowl...and i love
my Seahawks. What if the US gets to the next round...imagine the
fever then...this is the worlds game!
Congrats USA. And thanks for helping a few more Americans jump on the bandwagon
of real football.
@RockOnAnd yet, every time you click on a World Cup article to tell
us how much you hate soccer (thanks for that, by the way), it registers as a hit
and tells the media that soccer coverage is popular. That leads them to cover
more soccer, which draws more ad revenue, which creates more and more interest
in the sport, which brings in more and more players, which brings in more and
more fans, which means the USA does better and better in future World Cups, then
one day you wake up and *BAM*....we're a Socialist country. Or something
like that - I might have gotten a few of the details wrong. But deep down, the
real fear of every back woods soccer hater is that being good at soccer will
turn us into Socialists.The point is, thanks for clicking.
Congrats USA, I was predicting Germany and Ghana to go through but Ghana managed
to destroy that chance before they started. Exciting matches.
Having served and lived in Brazil on my mission seeing how much they support
their team on a local and national scale. it is nice to see united states
finally picking up Futebol as well as we have and supporting our team as well as
we have. it is sad to see persons such as RockOn who would rather be unsupported
and say that its not real football. Especially since Futebol has been around
ALOT longer than football has.
RockOn - I hope you realize that everyone reading your post has access to the
internet; therefore, they have the ability to quickly determine that your
numbers are wrong/misleading.I am happy though that you recognize
the "many illegals" (if they speak Spanish, they must be illegal,
right?) are showing allegiance to the red, white, and blue and that they deserve
to be here to cheer on America's team.
@RockOn - Just because you don't like it doesn't mean the rest of us
don't. What do you want to go back to coverage of, Wimbeldon?
Please lose, USA, so we can get rid of this nonsense world clup coverage. And a
note to the soccerphiles... no, America is NOT liking soccer much despite
enormous feigned and phony coverage trying to give that impression. Yes, 11
million turned on the "match" but after all the hype that this was the
biggest game/match ever, it was ONLY 11 million (many illegals). For real
football on a slow day with inconsequential teams the NFL gets double that
viewership. 111 million watch the consequential games.Soccer is fun
to play (I played on a university team), but one of the dullest things to watch.
Makes golf exciting. So please, USA, lose.
Congratulations to Team USA! You are awesome!
