World Cup Exclusive: 5% Of America Watch

World Cup Loss to Ghana Is Most Watched U.S. Men's Soccer Match in History

This contest numbered almost as many people that watched the women's softball championship.World Cup viewership almost will reach the numbers of those that watch NASCAR to view just how well pit crews perform.

Possibly the World Cup will, in the next few years, in America surpass the number of women who view their daughters performing ballet to Elmer Fudd humming Dvořák' humming Brahms, with a hangover from canopies and whiskey featuring miniature hot dogs.

I am out on a limb here, but I think Americans will watch the World Cup in greater numbers than those that breathlessly wait for a James Wolcott article on shrimp dogs and fat ugly cats.

Are there that many people that actually read Wolcott? No.

Drudge, rock on, but who actually cares about fotball? 0-0 is so exciting. Tying is so like kissing your sister. Nuance be damned.
