It's a shame that this thread has become a bashing of the world's most popular sport. I've been loving this World Cup so far.

I'm not sure about Clearwater but in Pinellas you could try MacDintons in St Pete, and the Horse & Jockey in South Pasadena are hosting watch parties for the England games. Also, any of the Brass Taps should have sound on for the games.

MacDintons in South Tampa is always a popular choice, but I'd avoid it for the late games!

COME ON ENGLAND

I happen to be in Santiago this week, Chile beat Spain, the streets were empty I was in a corporate park surrounded by office buildings you could hear every oh and ahh throughout the game from every building made the streets feel like you were in a stadium watching the game, the superbowl doesn't come close to these kind of games.

That's because in soccer all you need is a barren field and a kickball.....even third world countries can supply those two things

Amazing how they knock the world number one. I guess Spain becomes the second defending champion to crush out in the group stage in the history of the game, if my memory is correct.

International game that is held every four years and sometimes the team doesn't qualify will get a big audience in that country. Superbowl is between two teams from two cities. Hard to compare. I'd expect that on Superbowl Sunday the cities of the teams involved would be similar to what you saw in Santiago.

It's why it's the most popular game on the planet.

( And what they kick is called a football not a kickball )

It's hard to describe, there is no direct comparison, I lived in NY during a couple of championships, I been to a lot of Superbowl cities even then the spirit is confined to the NFL zones, maybe a small city like where the Packers come from would come close, is national pride it transcends gender lines, I know there are women that love football, none of the women in my life care at all about football. I know what a close example in a small scale would be, if Nebraska was playing in the national championship and you were in campus think about that but across a whole country.
