I've always liked playing soccer but never been a big fan of watching it, until this year. I watched as much as I could, of the American matches that is. It was great to see how well we did, and it should really open the eyes of the world, and this should go a long way to gaining respect in the sport. As for myself and many other Americans I'm sure the fan base will keep growing as the US keeps becoming better and better. I garuntee you the raitings for the MLS will improve drastically now.
