Did someone say soccer?

Not many people here! 

A sporting event watched by the majority of the planet.  Except for the U.S.A!  Hardly anyone around the San Diego area knows it’s happening or could give a toss.

Do Americans get football / soccer?  Let’s have some comments.

  1. This morning, I had to ask someone what sport was the World Cup, and indeed, if it even was a sport. If I’d had to guess, I would have guessed horse race. Shows how little I know.

  2. Thanks for your comment Doug. The football world cup is the 2nd biggest sporting event in the world, after the Olympics.

    It runs for 4 weeks every four years.
