Most definitely. My DVR has come quite in handy. Now that the US is out I can just enjoy the games and not care who wins. Although it would be nice to see Germany win.
haha! Yeah, I'm glad the yanks are out, sadly I still have to put up with those sucky american announcers,
They make me glad I can speak Spanish, the guys on Univision are far better than the ESPN crew...
But I can't get myself to watch univision, it's an insult to spanish people.
Don't you find those shows just soooo wrong?
Its all about Brazil now...maybe France.
I've actually been waking up at 8 am to catch some of these games. I haven't been awake that early in a long time. So yeah I'm watching the World Cup.
Here's my conspiracy theory on the lack of network coverageof the world cup. Soccer is a sport not dominated by Americans, so the networks don't market or cover it at all. Granted, you could say Americans aren't interested, but the major networks could turn a pick-up game between two shit ass football teams and market it to be the greatest game ever played and millions would watch. They create the want, the television marketing. So, since the US sucks at soccer the networks don't want us Americans watching our team get the shit kicked out of them, so they shove it to the side and cover one of 5000 baseball games being played for like an hour, and devote 30 seconds to world cup highlights. Despite the fact that it is the most popular sport in the world, and the fact that many Americans are interested in the World Cup. That's my take.
I love soccer, play twice a week.
i've been watching world cup sparingly, but if there's a baseball game on i'll watch that instead.
Most americans hate soccer, so why should we broadcast it? Baseball and real football are 10 x better.
If you like soccer so much stop bitching and go move to some third world country...try canada
I can't stand baseball...i'd rather have someone shoot me...in the arm or someplace non lethal-still baseball has like 150 games a year and there's something like 100 teams. The World Cup is once every 4 years...but they still devote more coverage to 1 meaningless baseball game than they do the quarter finals of the World Cup.
If i went to England and complained about this soccer shit when the yankee game was on id be laughed out of the Pub. Same thing here in america, except the reverse is true.
If baseball were the world's most popular sport and they only had the championship tournament every 4 years, your analogy might apply in this case.
They play it on Espn and ABC..why run it 24/7 when no one is going to watch it?
one thing i really can't stand about the world cup so far....the logo. i don't like logo's smiling and winking at me. it's creepy.
might not want to watch then...just an idea.
I've been watching it sparingly on weekends when I'm near a TV. I'm rooting for England.
