Commercially Soccer is not such a big thing in the US but I think a lot of immigrants and college students follow it. I know there are parts of the city where they have to beef up patrol coverage around this time, Queens especially, has a lot of So Americans who go nuts after the games when their homeland is represented. I was down in lower Manhattan yesterday and all the Bars were jammed with spectators. Was nice seeing people walking around waving American Flags too.
Not much of a soccer fan so whether the Brits beat us in the game really does not matter, because we already won, we have a President and not a Queen. Also, none of us speak with those funky Brit' Accent. Right Mate! LOL! Sorry Motorwaycop, could not resist, had to mention the Revolution, not a game but a fight that our Forefathers won for the freedoms we have today.
Just throwing it out there England, Wayne Rooney was a hell of a player but seriously on the cry baby level GROW UP!
i love the world cup
im a sports fan, all sports...plus ill get behind anything sports related when the USA is involved. i also played college soccer and rugby. football (our football, with hitting and tackiling and stuff) is still my favorite sport by far, but i really enjoy watching world class professional soccer in jammed packed arenas where the crowd is going apeshit.
I know I'm late but:
