World News - World Cup

In the U.S. we have the Super Bowl, the World Series, and then the championships for Basketball, Hockey, and all the big college sports. There is also the Olympics, but nothing compares to the World Cup. Though the U.S. might not pay a whole lot of attention, the rest of the world does and is focused on what is the greatest spectacle for them. No matter what the U.S. thinks, soccer is the world's sport and the world is watching. So why is soccer not as big in the U.S as in the rest of the world? We do have a professional league and we do take part in the World Cup, but we don't seem to be all that crazy about the world cup? Slowly and surely soccer is growing in popularity, and you would think that a nation of immigrants (which is what we truly are) would be crazy about the same sport as the rest of the world. Also, there are way more kids playing soccer than baseball and football and basketball. Maybe we just have to be different?

What do you think?
