Guess its just a matter of taste & if I have to have taste to enjoy World Cup soccer, then I guess I don't have any...e

I know with the rest of the world,

That soccer is a big sport,

But I don’t ever remember,

When the US got so involved,

So many fans in this country & to the world they herald…


The news reports at all hours,

Are showing the US with their 1 point win,

Over Algeria, on all the fans is there now a grin,

Women are smiling and guys are showing off their powers…


I don’t find it to be all that interesting,

Rather see real American football or even baseball,

I guess to some soccer brings about a zing,

But give me a game involving the Cowboys & Eagles,

Now that kind of game will definitely of me enthrall…

I think soccer's a damn good sport, and it's even better with a cold beer.

There is only one thing more important than soccer, and that's winning at soccer. The states have a pdg team.

It provides us all with a pleasant distraction!! Why worry over affairs of real importance, when the whole world is playing soccer eh!
