World Cup 2010: Why Soccer Isn't So Popular In the USA

The World Cup starts this month. Will anyone in America watch?

Certainly yes. But, despite it being THE big sport in virtually every nation on the globe, soccer definately isn't nearly as popular in the USA as it is elsewhere.

I've always wondered why this might be...especially considering that teams from the USA have done decently well in World Cups gone by.

CNN has a good story HERE that explains some of the reasons soccer hasn't taken off in the United States.

Popular or not, I'll be watching the World Cup and rooting for our team to advance as far as possible.
