    im glad the US lost, cause if the US keeps winning, it gets more people interested. and since soccer sucks, it dont need more fans.

    ^How about you just not watch? Is that so hard? I don't like golf, but I couldn't care less about the fans Tiger Woods earns for the sport.


    And man, US were robbed. Terrible that things like that can slide on this large of a stage. Poor Edu... he was Gallaraga'd.

    Which makes the next game a must win. Win and you're in.

    Not that that makes it any more exciting or anything... (sarcasm)

    I think America is just too ADD for soccer. Without a commercial every 30 seconds of game play to get a beer, or stoppage in a game to go pee, they can't handle it. Having to watch the game for the first 3/4ths is tough.
    Basketball, the first half is useless. Tune in at half and if it's close you can watch. Same for football. Baseball you can tell if it's over within the first 5 innings.

    I don't know if its ADD as much as there's not a whole lot happening for the majority of the time..it's pretty boring to me but that's why I don't watch and why this is the first comment I've done in this thread :)

    The tension is there at every moment. Love it. You only get that kind of pressure in the ncaa tournament. The World Cup set up makes every match critical as well. Spain has a bad day and now they must scramble for their lives. Great cup so far. USA will have a ton of pressure on the pitch when the whistle blows and that makes this a lot of fun to watch for a ton of teams, England and Slovlovs included.

    By the way, baseball was invented because cricket was too slow. So whoever said that baseball was a slow game doesn't not get it at all. Baseball was designed to be fast. The video game generation has no clue.

    Yeah that drives me nuts. Too many F list actors make World Cup squads. However, I'm proud to say the Americans are one of the few teams that don't play that way.
