    Fifa World Cup play is under way and all over the world it is a big thing but for us Americans (as a whole) soccer is not a sport we follow. Our interest has increased since the last world cup as you have a lot more sport's bars filled with people chanting "USA" (plus it helps that it takes place during the dead period in sports). But the moment we are no longer a contender for the cup bars will be empty until it is time to cheer for our favorite college and/or NFL teams. I am curious how many of you actually follow soccer other than the world cup. I will admit I don't, in fact it took me a moment to figure out what color uniforms we were wearing in today's game. The red Portugal wore looked kind of bright on the TVs at the sport's bar I was at so I ended up remaining silent until I had time to whip out my phone and go to espn.com to make sure I am cheering for the right team. Hey don't judge me. But once I got my bearings I actually got into the game, had a mouth full of pizza when we scored our second goal. Unfortunately we tied, which for us feels like a loss.

    So are you Football or Futbol?
    For those who are Football shout out your team (college and/or NFL).

    But I just got back from a sports bar/restaurant watching USA vs Portugal. First game I've sat through all the way and it gets intense. That could be due to the environment, but it was exciting.

    Still prefer Football over it though.

    Just like March Madness, Stanley Cup, NBA, and World Series, I only watch these sports during the "playoffs." While I literally spend all of NFL Sunday plopped right in front of the TV each week. I catch the Thurs and Monday night games as well! I've watched a few World Cup match ups but haven't really looked for them. I did go out of my way to watch the US v Port game though and did catch the end of Germany v Ghana. Both were exciting!

    49ers all the way




    And yeah the bar I was at people were in to it. I am sure alcohol played its way into the equation as well, but yeah you could hear "USA, USA, USA" all through. And when the US scored the second goal that place erupted.

    Yeah place I was at went nuts. But when Portugal scored in those last 20sec, a collective sigh happened followed by some not so friendly language.

    But hey, US was ranked 13th I was told and Portugal 4th, so pretty good. Had the game and eased up, but if the head coach doesn't even believe in the team then any success is overachieving, right?

    Tried to get into in 94 when the World Cup was held here in the States. Never could. It's 20 years later and I can count on no hands the number of soccer games I've watched since.

    I'm 50/50 American Italian and I couldn't care less about both sports. Its hockey all the way for me!

    Also, I work at the high school Kap went to and am so f'ing tired of hearing his name every day. We still get news vans every once in a while and a ton when he does something stupid. Why couldn't he have lived in Modesto.

    I get more than enough world cup updates on the NFL network each day during NFL AM.

    Cleveland Browns. Don't follow Soccer at all. I am one of those rare fans that only watched my team until they no longer have a shot at the playoffs. So yea... haven't watched many late season Browns games in YEARS.

    Best video ever:
