World Cup a big yawn in soccer-hating US – Yahoo! News

World Cup a big yawn in soccer-hating US – Yahoo! News

Could someone please explain to me why this sport doesn’t catch on here? It makes no sense to me! I’ll take a bad soccer game over a “good” football game any day. “Oh no! We’ve run for 10 minutes! Someone stop the clock!”

We’re getting down to the final 4 now, why not give it a try?

July 4th will be Germany Vs. Italy at 3:00 PM EST. On the 5th you can catch Portugal Vs. France at 3:00 PM EST. I would say give the Germany game a shot, that one promises to be a nail biter. Germany has a good shot at it this year I feel.

Think about this, according to the above linked article:

36 Million Americans watched the finale of American Idol
39 Million Americans watched the Academy Awards
91 Million Americans watched the Super Bowl

1.1 BILLION worldwide watched the final game of the 2002 World Cup.

I will be watching every second of the game on July 9th.
