That was kind of my point with the Uruguay and Honduras World Cup comment. Nobody cares about the world cup, nobody will be watching it except a bunch of lunatic soccer fans from another country who will riot when their team loses.

Are you familiar with Rugby football?......the father of American football before pads were introduced? Try to watch a game sometime. It's fun to watch but can be difficult to follow. But, I agree about soccer wholeheartedly. Soccer has taken over in the states, but then again so has the Spanish speaking population.

I actually used to get up early on Saturday mornings, to watch the New Zealand All Blacks play, on Fox Sports. Those guys are intense. I like Rugby, it's freaking brutal! Soccer is like watching paint dry....
