Ya, I don't think the sport is really as popular as I'd like it to be. I think Soccer is viewed as a kids game at best and a game for gay people (I mean that as homophobic AND as just a plain insult) at worst by the general public. However, we really only care about things we excel in so I think we are really just a solid run in the WC (my fingers are going to be permanently crossed some day) away from the game blowing up in the states.
If we could ever get the quality of some of the European leagues, which with our population isn't unfathomable, we would have more support around soccer more consistantly than once every four years.
This is sad. Unfortunately, I have noticed this when asking Americans away from this site if they are into the sport. "Soccer is for pussies" "Real men don't watch soccer", etc.
Judging by how your national team players are progressing in European leagues lately e.g Bradley, Jozy, it wouldn't surprise me if you went even further at the next WC. Most of your players will be used to the standard Brazilian temperatures too, always a factor when there's a WC taking place in such a climate. As long as you don't get in the way of Russia, I'm fine with this...
Thanks to the learning channel we get shows like that haha. Im probably the only one but I find their accent really sexy and if they weren't covered in makeup and tan I think they would be quite attractive. I just like my women with minimal makeup and as pale as possible.
I think you hit the nail on the head with the "it's just MLS not being popular" comment. I see tons of England, Spain and Italy first division kits but never MLS. I've managed to convert most of my friends to be soccer fans but when they watched MLS they were disappointed by the passing and the skill level of the players. They mentioned that they were unlikely to watch MLS again unless Michigan got a team. I think that's more the norm than the exception
The irony with gypsy, and to a lesser extent Scouse women, is the fact their appearances are deceptive and they aren't nearly as promiscuous as some think. They dress the way they do purely for the sake of dressing up and having a good time, and not for the sake of getting laid. I think alot of Gypsy girls have amazing eyes, which I'm a sucker for. I'm also a fan of prominent accents but not these accents ha.
What are the chances of Michigan getting a team?
