Soccer and the USA

Jimmy O'Regan wrote (emphasis is mine!):

Yeah, but Americans don't really get soccer yet, so it's hard to imagine there'd be too many people who are really into it. (It's not just a European thing either: the South Americans are a lot louder from what I've seen).

As an honorary Mexican I feel compelled to object!

Ah! The USA is a bundle of contradictions:

  1. The most popular country in the world. (Look at immigration stats)

  2. The least popular government in the world. (Ask people around the world who enemy number 1 is)

  3. The country with the greatest number of great sports people. (See who has been winning the most gold medals over a longish period of time)

  4. The country with the least participation in the world's most popular game. (Soccer)

... the list goes on.
