Bars in America depend on female customers. I never have hated soccer. I've been a soccer mom for longer than you've decided soccer was a great sport. Sure, there are new fans but in America, the NFL, the NBA, and MLB are king. Elite athletes who don't flop around like babies are what Americans like to watch for the most part. It's like when you are about to purchase a new car and zero in on a particular make and model. It seems that all of a sudden everyone is driving that car. It's human nature to want to feel like your choices were good ones that others also aspire to. That said, you are likely in the minority because Lizelle's tweets from court during a football trial were more compelling and got more attention than this thread. Fox is in way more homes than Telemundo but Telemundo crushed Fox in terms of viewers. It's the off-season so most folks are probably spending less time here. Another issue with soccer is that the World Cup is only every 4 years, whereas the Super Bowl, CWS, College Football Championship, World Series are every year. I just don't believe that droves of Americans are going to give up watching those things to watch Premier League waiting for 2022. And even then, World Cup lasts for a month! Maybe Euros and Latin/South Americans can manage to take a month off from work, sit in front of a huge TV downtown, and watch/drink all day but that's not how things happen here. But you never know....the Irish bar down the street from me was packed at 7AM for Mexico/Brazil.
