Love that Japanese team... read elsewhere that some of the ladies didn't even have the passage to Germany, that they had to scrape and borrow.  Of course the Federation will pay them back, but it just goes to show how much adversity they had to overcome.  Aya Sameshima actually worked at the Fukushima Nuclear Plant and lost friends and co-workers in the Tsunami, almost quitting football.  Months later and she's a world champion.

Most Cinderella stories end somewhere around the q-finals ...maybe as far as a semi final... Cool this one ended like a true fairytale.  Hope they can build on this success....

Neither of these posts makes any sense.

First off War the US national teams are well-supported... every game that ESPN broadcast showed lots of fans in the stadiums, even in these ketch-ass times.  Same for the men last year in S. Africa.  In the Gold Cup they traveled all over the country supporting the team... CONCACAF just was greedy in putting it in LA because they wanted a big stadium (the venue held 90K+) and wanted to ensure a sellout.  This is why there were so many Mexicans... the Confederation knew them Mexicans would pay whatever price to come to the game.  So I dunno where you getting this "the team not supported by those who claim they love the sport" talk from.


DHW... I doh even know your rationale for concluding that Americans think "the NFL, baseball etc." is God's gift to man.  The way you acting is as though they trying to shove it down people throat.  To begin with there's not national push by the gov't or any other body to force the sports on the rest of the world... so this isn't about "Americans".  NFL and MLB smart... they watching how basketball growing around the world (how come yuh eh complain about that?).  Same thing ManU and Liverpool doing in Asia is the same thing the NFL trying to do... increase it's global footprint so as to sell more merchandise.   It eh have nutten to do with "God's gift to man" unless God's gift to man is money.

Plenty Americans are ignorant about football, but not as much as people think and it is changing fast.  Imagine 3 of the 5 nominees for play of the year on the ESPY's were football (soccer)...including an EPL & an MLS play...The eventual winner being Abby Wambach...that was a voter driven category so that says alot!! During the World Cup, here in NYC bars were packed during working hours with Americans (not immigrants) running away from their offices to watch the matches... On the Saturday of the CL final same thing...I know NYC is not the best reflection of America, but take a look at the average MLS crowd during the season - at one point it was about 30K per game (average eh!!!)...it's probably more now....In Seattle the Sounders are reportedly the most widely followed sporting franchise in the city (not sure how they measure that)... Take a look at Seattle home games when the sounders play...It's insane!...more atmosphere than alot of EPL games I watch

The America hates football mentality is as much cliche as it is reality.  The largest amount of tix bought for the WC in South Africa were bought by people based in the ....USA (not a perfect stat of course but still has some meaning)....I think WC 2006 stats were close/similar.... It's the only country in the world that has so many competing sports with a market share larger than football, so naturally there will be obstacles to the sport's growth and there will always be the old boys club, particularly in middle America who has been born and bred on football, basketball and baseball.....but all in all, America loves football more than most give them credit for.

Kicker you have time yes... people are beholden to their cliches.  People forgetting how vast and diverse America is... 212 million people.  Some will like football some won't.  The fact of the matter is that the sport isn't organic to the US and because of their particular history they have a suspicion of things foreign.  Plenty people 'hate' Lacrosse and Hockey too... or don't care for it (*raises hand*).  Right there in Trinidad it have plenty people who hate football.  Leh we talk about that nah?  :devil:
