My Opinion

With the World Cup going on soccer has taken center stage in America’s consciousness.The record TV numbers prove that.The different venues throughout the country are packed with casual as well as hardcore fans.While I am not a soccer fan,I do get interested when our country is involved and actually has a pretty good team.The question is whether soccer can become as big in this country as Baseball,Football and Basketball.Every time the World Cup is played this question comes up.Soccer gets a temporary boost but it usually doesn’t last.The NY Cosmos were very big and had had superstars like Pele and Giorgio Chinaglia but their popularity waned when those stars left.Soccer will always be more popular worldwide than here but every four years when the World Cup is being played,soccer in this country becomes the attraction.It’s just that it doesn’t last.That’s my opinion.
