This Is How You Know Soccer Is Big in The USA



The cover of the evening edition of today's New York Post. We have now officially entered the tabloid era of MLS. Amazing.

Someone (^^^) lost their way and found themselves here. Did you Google "Soccer is big in the USA" because you were feeling a bit left out?

^^^ No, I googled NFL, NBA, NASCAR, NHL, MLB, OLYMPICS, UFC, etc

The separation has been the best thing for his career. The guy has been money since their split. He's been on a whole 'nother level. If this getting back together thing is true, it makes me think that Bianca might be interested in the fat new contract that Landon is probably gonna get after this World Cup.

Not exactly a stand up and cheer reunion. Anytime someone gets their 15 minutes of fame with the mainstream, all of the sudden people start coming out of the woodwork. Just remember, Landon, we were here for you before you were a twitter trending topic...

And by the way, every four years curling gets the entire network of CNBC dedicated to it for two weeks, so if that's what you were trying to compare the World Cup to with ESPN, then that is a pretty astute analysis. What this sport needs is everyday average Joes like yourself to watch during the three years in between. The salt of the Earth. The common clay. You know: "Morons"!

(If I may quote Blazing Saddles...)

haha, it's like winning the next game is the less important part.

Actually soccer has become so popular that the anti-soccer wieners are spending their time hunting for soccer blogs. Yeah, like we're going to agree with you, buddy.

Oh, and it was smart of you to post as Anonymous since even the pudgiest of soccer fans could kick the snot out of you. :P

ACtually since the USA had an EPIC FAIL against Ghana, Curling is already more popular than SUCCER LMFAO!!

What a difference a day makes, huh? Unbelievable. Front page of NY post today, "This Sport is Stupid Anyway"

Also a headline on the website that says, "With U.S. loss, soccer interest fades", but when you click it it's just a run down of the US Ghana game.

If Landon's goal saved his marriage, it'll be interesting to see what this pregnancy scandal does to ruin it again: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/soccer/world-cup-2010/06/26/donovan.tabloid/index.html
