Congratulations to Team USA! You are awesome!

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.

@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?

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.


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.

Congrats USA, I was predicting Germany and Ghana to go through but Ghana managed to destroy that chance before they started. Exciting matches.

And 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. And thanks for helping a few more Americans jump on the bandwagon of real football.

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!
