Can people knock off this stupid “soccer’s gonna get huge in America!” crap that happens every 4 years? There’s a difference between people genuinely becoming interested in soccer, and people who see it as a big event to be enjoyed and then immediately forgotten it the second it’s over. More than any other one, I've enjoyed this year's World Cup. People around me are buzzed about it, a few actually follow soccer, and watching the game and drinking a coupla beers with them is great. But the second it's over, the odds of my thinking about soccer for another second again are exactly 0, same as most people. Next Super Bowl party you're at, ask how many of the people watched a single game all year. Will be maybe 1/2, if that, and the NFL is HUGE.
