Hey everyone. I will be experiencing my first World Cup as I became a "football" (soccer) fan two years ago. I didnt even know such a tournament existed and now after following MLS and EPL for the last two years on EPSN, Fox Soccer Channel, and Setanta Sports, I am well versed with many of the players involved in the tourney.
So is anyone out there watching? Who will you be rooting for? What teams and leagues do you follow? How did you come to the sport?
I will be rooting on my country the USA. One of the only sports we are underdogs in. I follow the EPL (Tottenham), MLS (Seattle), as well as the champions league and other tournements like the fa cup. I came to the sport after a year long mocking of my british boss for liking such a girly sport. After a year of this the euro cup was going to be on espn so I tuned in to kiss a little ass, but what I got out of it was a life changing experience. If I had to keep only one sport it would be the beautiful game.
So anyway share your story if you git one and if your in the US tune on on ESPN, ESPN2, and ABC to view this years World Cup June 11th thu July from South Africa.
