Un Zih de Ensueño

My generation grew up without much soccer. Sports were football (USA style), baseball and basketball... every now and again a little track and field... mostly around Olympics time. I think my kids' generation have a greater respect and feeling for the game of soccer, they played it when they were young. The sport will become more and more popular, in the USA, as us old farts die off and a new generation takes over calling the shots. It's happening as we speak. The Portland Timbers have a great following and sell out home games regularly. Portland has dubbed itself "Soccer City, USA." To a great extent, it's true. Even the Thorn, the ladies team, has a consistently high attendance at their home games. Give it time Rob, the USA will come around. Games like Sunday's World Cup can only help.
