My boys never played soccer. It was baseball for them. Of course, spectator wise, they are football, basketball, baseball, and hockey fans. There's always something on television for Americans to watch. My husband watches even more sports than that. He turns on soccer all the time. I recently switched to u-verse for television, and the sports package gives him way too many different sports to watch. It's no wonder than Americans are known as couch potatoes. Especially AMerican husbands.
