This is about sports when I have those type polls disabled until football starts again. Interesting. I'm guessing this under announcements too for some reason?

Did Scotland get in? No? Then back to stalking the Russian women's curling team.

I won't watch soccer either. But it is fun to play. I pick based on the names of the teams or their team colors or whatever.

USA, I'm sorry to say, doesn't look like it's getting past the first round. Portugal is very good. Ghana is good, I think better than us. Germany, even without one of their best players will should beat us.
We will need our whole team to be great!

I don't know, yesterday's match against Nigeria gave me hope. The US played well.

The US team is more than talented enough to advance out of the group stage. That, and they got a favorable draw in getting Germany in the last game.

Isn't Portugal missing Ronaldo too? I thought he got injured in a friendly so even better odds for us.

I think Ronaldo will be back in time. But Portugal tends to play average internationally these days.

Come on, just because you don't understand it or like it doesn't mean it sucks. It's a different sport, I don't like American football mainly because I don't understand the rules and can't stand all the commercials but it doesn't mean it sucks. IMHO.

I understand the basics of soccer and find it extremely boring. Baseball>Football>Basketball>Soccer are the four major sports from greatest to least imo

Maybe if they changed the name to Futball we'd show an interest. Soccer sound so little kidish!

I don't know how successful that will be. Americans and soccer go together like ice cream on pizza

MLS is the fastest growing sport in the US, you guys have a decent team (Rapids) that has a lot of followers. My Sounders matches draw in 30K minimum spectators at home.
Ice cream on pizza must be delicious, should try new things once in a while :)

MLS will rival MLB in 5 to 10 years. Guaranteed. Potentially 4 new teams in three years. Beginning to develop a real promotion and relegation pyramid scheme. It's only a matter of time. More money more TV time. It's happening.
