I know one thing. The US will never win the World Cup, simply because of the attitude towards the game of football (soccer).
We automatically assume we're "the best."
And (according to Alexi Lalas) Casey Keller is the best goalie in the world..
And we automatically assume we're just as good as the power houses, Italy, Brazil, England, Spain...etc....yuh right!
This sport takes generations upon generations of breeding....regardless of $$$ and resources and fancy stadiums.
The first thing, is the attitude.
As for the best in baseball? Think again. Most "all star" hitters and pitchers are Central American..
Hockey? No way. Canada's way way better.
And there's definitely a few holes in that top ten list.
Like the nukes, and the inventions of TV, etc....not true.
There's idiots all over the planet. The guy who made this top ten list might be an example.
It's naive to generalize Americans imo.....some of us actually do care of what's going on especially with foreign policies etc...
Then again, the majority doesn't care.
I think that's maybe # 11. We don't give a sh*t for the most part.
