Well, if some of you choose to read newspapers you'd discover that US tv viewership is thru the roof for the US World Cup games.

Town squares are packed out for large screen broadcasts from Washington, D.C. to Kansas City and bars in Brooklyn are packed to the gunnels.

I bet the hierarchy of FIFA are creamin' their kecks on this - will we have 30-second 'time-outs' in every game in future for the ad breaks?   :blink:

A guy on a podcast i heard was commenting how he's out driving and every bar is crammed when US is playing.


I do not see in religion the mystery of the incarnation so much as the mystery of the social order. It introduces into the thought of heaven an idea of equalization, which saves the rich from being massacred by the poor.

Watching the World Cup for the past few days in New York and Orlando and the Yanks are certainly up for it. ESPN coverage is very good with Van Niselroy, Roberto Martinez and a few others.

Martinez is brilliant. Very likeable guy and Lalas is good as the American sidekick. I actually don't mind listening to Steve McManaman commentating too. He tells it like it is and doesn't sugar coat the pish England side.

The US have sold more tickets for the world cup than any other country, bar brazil. I think it was the same in South Africa too. Obviously some of those will be there to watch their mother country but it is a bit ignorant to say there is no interest and the ones who do watch have no idea what is going on.

Interesting view on Untied airlines magazine saying Rooney is England's star player - Good player, but not as good as England think he is.

There does seem to have been a turnaround in how the US fans look at football. As good a support from them as I've seen. Some incredible photos of fans in cities in the states. And while they arent the most appealing football side, I think they've looked pretty respectable and I think last nights team had 7 MLS players in the starting eleven which is pretty good for a league that's constantly slated.

At least they're a bit more animated these days.
