I've never watched a soccer game (or match or whatever they call it) in my life other than playing our version of it at recess in school when they told us we couldn't play "smear" or "tackle basketball" anymore.
Looks like this World Cup is going to be an experiment to see if I can be converted enough to watch a game based on exposure. I usually watch Mike and Mike or The Herd if I'm around the house in the morning and every time I turn on the TV that's what they are talking about.
It's not really that I don't like soccer (after all it's a game and I like any game) but more that I don't know much about it and it was never a part of my world.
It does raise my eyebrows a little that some of the guys on ESPN that never "liked" soccer at all now suddenly like it.
Sort of reminds me of people that suddenly like a product when they start getting paid to like that product.
I do of course hope the USA wins when they play whether I watch it or not and that would be the case no matter what sport it is.
