    Any body following the World Cup?

    I am married to a Brasilian and I got into soccer as a result.

    The U.S. has a tough game on Monday vs. The Cezch. Republic at 11:55. GO RED WHITE AND BLUE!!!!!

    I will also cheer on Brasil as well. (They are favored to win!)

    On the flip side any of you not even know The Cup was taking place?

    Most Americans don't really care about soccer but our team worked very hard to prepare for this cup and I hope they do us proud!

    U S A !!!!!!!!

    As an ex Brit jay I had, while still in UK - what we called a ''belly full'' of soccer. Too much exposure and too many dunderheads within the so called ''fans''. Turned me right off in the end.

    I can understand your interest tho with the Brazilian connection and hope naturally we whap the Czechs

    The Czechs have a good team and that was a tough draw for us. How did you handle, or should I say, your wife handle the US team beating the Brasilians?

    I was recently in Europe so it was fun to watch all the World Cup prep and historical World Cup programming on the local and BBC networks. I don't see the US team winning it all, but I believe they will acquit themselves well this go around.

    The what??? From someone who shoots golf with a .22 pistol, the only TRUE American sport is NASCAR. Fast cars, hot ladies, and most of the drivers are shooters and/or hunters too, they get my support.

    The last time I knew the World Cup was happening was when it was in Chicago (and so was I). It screwed up everything (traffic, restaurants, cabs, etc.) for a solid week, and Americans were called xenophobes because we didn't care enough to show up for the matches.

    I have enough sports to watch as it is, why would I need to add one with an attitude like that?

    Actually, the only true American sport would be rodeo.

    I guess just never was patient enough for soccer
