Until recently it wasn;t all that popular here, though now there is a lot of interest. Funny, though. In grade school that's all we played on the
fields, but we go to Junior High and suddenly--no more soccer. It was all football. I don't know what the deal is there.
because they hate anything english, and want desperately to separate themselves from their heritage, like spelling colour without the u or
driving on the opposite side of the road, they made modifications to the english football game.
Oh, come on, bud. That's not true. Most Americans like everything English (Well, except for the food) and nobody's being desperate. I don't know
how the spelling changes happened or the side of the road thing, but I do know roundabouts are getting VERY popular here, which has only happened in
the last few years. We loved the Beatles and the Stones, and many of us are proud Anglophiles.
and they crown a "world" champion every year for a game they only play and that has absolutely no interest or following anywhere outside of
Probably true, but who cares? I do believe the American women have done pretty well in soccer the last few years, right?
