Majority of Americans do not watch nor do they like soccer, period.

I'm laughing too. It's hilarious to watch people proudly proclaim their own stupidity.

If the sport sucks so much why are you taking the time to post in all these threads. You must care about the sport on some level or you would not be in the soccer forum.

I never said soccer sucks, I criticized the crazed fans and games are too noisy, however, I enjoy watching all sports and will watch championship games especially if the US is competing, I will admit I did watch US vs GHA, but I am not a soccer fan.

While I was watching the matches I felt like the best player I saw was that Forlan dude from Uruguay. Sure enough he won the tournament MVP award. I'm picking this sport up a little better.

Soccer is something I started paying attention to in the late 90's. By the 2006 World Cup I'd become a fan, thereafter following the UEFA league tournaments.

In 2008 I bet on Spain as the UEFA tournament winner. As a result of winninig that bet, I felt assured Spain would take home this World Cup's trophy.

As evidenced, I've been much thrilled, enthused and engaged with soccer which is now my favourite of all sports.

This year's World Cup was truly spectacular. And while the final game at times ressembled somewhat of a street fight, the winning goal was a dramatic moment in history of which much will be written about for generations to come.

This is world competition in the purest and most beautiful form, with an undisputible winner at the end. I love the sport and World Cup competition.

I trust this will satisfy the poster's question: "Any Americans following the World Cup?"

I agree! Diego Forlan is an absolute STUD and I really enjoyed watching him play! What a great player... And He even played great hurt, basicaly playing on one leg in the last game vs. Germany and scored an absolute beautiful goal! He was also absolutely amazing on set plays/free kicks... Honestly, I thought his last free kick just outside the box against Germany was going in, it hit the crossbar!! Was so close!!!
