I’m a big football fan, whether it’s American football or European, (which we call “soccer” here in the states), so the World Cup is always an exciting time for me. I don’t know if any of you caught the USA vs. Ghana match but that was a pretty thrilling victory for my home team. Something that actually surprised me about the match was how many people actually watched it here in the US. Soccer hasn’t always been a super popular sport here, especially when you stack it’s fan base up against our version of football, basketball, or baseball. This year’s World Cup has been a pleasant surprise for me because it seems like the sport has really gained popularity here and it’s fun for me to have more fans to cheer along with. Go team USA!
