Actually Soccer is gaining popularity here in the states.  Usually its the guys that can't handling the pain and punishment of American football but still like to play 'Smear the Queer with the Ball' who go into Soccer.  Cool

It is only since Beckham and that Posh girl came to America that you suddenly became "interested".

Naw it started before those two made t he scene!
Don't hate us for our lack of interest in soccer Wouter,  it's like ice hockey only lamer! No high sticking and much fewer fights!
It is actually very popular amount the elementary and junior high school kids!
 
I thing Rugby would make it bigger here than soccer if all the bleeding hearts could get past the violence!

We are not usually good at soccer because our best athletes play other sports.  Imagine if Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Carl Lewis, Ladainian Tomlinson, Barry Sanders, Deion Sanders, Michael Jordan, Bo Jackson etc. grew up playing soccer.  But I can never get into watching soccer after having watched to many 0-0 ties.

I am also not a soccer fan, for that very reason BillyWayne. 90 min of kicking the ball around and then it is decided by 5 penalty goals each side!!! Why not just skip all the kicking and have penalty shootouts!
The game also changes in an instant with all the long kicks and very few off-side rules. So the stronger side can easily lose due to an unlucky pass.
But hey 400 million Africans can't be wrong!

Agree 8's, skip the game and go to penalty kicks.  It is catching on more and more around here due to lower input cost than football and fewer injuries.  Sioux Falls just hosted a big soccer tournament this past weekend.  Every last soccer field was full in town.

In the past decade it's been extremely popular in the states so the depth of good players has increased dramatically. Look for some great USA teams in the future as all this endless wave of youth gets older.

I am a huge soccer fan.  Played from the time I was 8 years old.  Played in high school (two state championships).  Played in college too, but we didn't do that well.  I play every year here in Bozeman.  I am not that good, but I love the sport and love watching it when I get the chance.  The talent of some of the players out there is amazing.  And yes you can call me weird, but I would watch soccer before football, baseball, or basketball.
