There are some things in life that just don’t seem to go together.

America and Soccer.

These two things don’t go together…or do they?  In the past, soccer has never been a first-class citizen in the world of American sports.  Even though soccer is the most popular sport in the world (based on number of fans), it is not even in the top ten most popular sports in America.  Despite these statistics, if you think back a few weeks, in a flurry of attention and fanfare, the 2011 US Women’s National soccer team made American history in their world championship game.  Not because they won (because they didn’t), but because they made Americans realize how much they valued the game of soccer.  Their game drew over 14 million American viewers, making it the second-most-watched women’s game in US television history, and ESPN’s most-watched and highest-rated soccer game ever.
