    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.

    It's alright, all footballers are a bunch of big girls blouses.

    They don't like it when you take their £50,000 cars of them and leave them stranded as they don't have a proper licence either!
    Oh happy days.

    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.

    go USA!
    in the warriors code there's no surrender, though his body says stop, his spirit cries...NEVER. deep in our souls, a quiet ember, knows its you against you, its the paradox that drives us all. its a battle of wills, in the heat of attack, its the passion that kills, and victory is yours alone.


    the posts and opinions stated by me do not in any way reflect the values, beliefs, or views of my department. they are simply opinions and/or observations which have been developed through my personal experiences. hell, most of the stories probably arent even true...wink wink
