    Not at all.

    Didn't even know the U.S. had a soccer team. I guess we always have something new to learn.

    They do, but the team is too busy complaining that they are not allowed to use their hands.

    Grats to you, best luck to the american team.
    Now that the germans are out, the Hype needs to settle down.
    They're just not as good as they were in the past.

    Let's see how far the japanese will get.

    I never knew anyone in the states took soccer seriously and especially women's soccer no offense I for one find it to be a very boring sport almost at baseballs level.

    Most people in Europe think otherwise, most "american" sports (basketball, baseball, icehockey, football) are boring to me, too much pauses, too few action.
    (well, I guess basketball is ok.)

    You must really dislike soccer if you compare it to baseball.

    Then again, when was the last time somebody rooted for Germany to win? Right, in the 40's; and we all know what came of it.
    It's astonishing how confused people get when a sentence does not end as they potato.

    Perhaps not all of the US, as there is a lot of sports competition. But in some cities like Seattle, it is very popular. Seattle averages 36,000 people per game which is enough to rank them in the top 50 world wide.

    i dont really like watching any sports, find them all quite boring to watch, but i love playing. but i have never liked baseball and basketball, we played these in school and i hated them, found them really boring. never played american football, but ive played rugby and i love that so i would probably enjoy that.

    On the professional level Soccer isn't as popular across the country. But from highschool and down I'd say it is pretty popular with most states having plenty of teams. And yep certain cities/states do have a higher popularity for it. Just like Texas is known for football, along with certain other areas/states/etc.

    You think hockey (which isnt American btw) is too boring with too many pauses...? o_O

    Have you ever seen a game? In soccer you can literally take your sweet ass time wearing down the clock to switch off players while you walk off the field. In hockey you have haul your ass over to your bench throw yourself over the wall just so the team members you are switching off with can do the exact same thing to get back on the ice. I have seen every single sport live and hockey is by far if not one of the most fast paced sports out of them all.

    No offense to Mexico (part of my family is from there) but they have one of the worst women's teams that qualified. In fact, this is the first year they've won a world cup game.

    The US v Brazil game was a game between arguably two of the top teams. And winning it is very exciting.

    I try to watch the world cup every 4 years along with any other tournaments along the way. I always root for the USA in major tournaments but its hard as they are not in every one.

    As for the Soccer v. Football v. Footy debate. All I have to say is this.... Name something football and it will be your nations most popular sport

    You must be relatively young then. As the women's team was very popular a few years ago. 1996-2000 were great years for popularity. Nike even named one of their buildings after a female soccer player.

    umm, no? I'm american but I always root for brazil/england when I watch soccer. I could care less about which nation/country is competing, I only care about the actual players.
