The Underdogs of the US Sports World
Did you know that the United States were up against Mexico for the Gold Cup this past weekend? Did you know that they won?
Apparently not too many people do. At least those who are NOT soccer fans! To even get airtime on regular television station, even ESPN sucks! For the championship games over the last couple of months, we have had to tune in to Telemundo, Channel 47 and the broadcast is in Spanish. It's a good thing the sport of football (Soccer) is universal otherwise I would be lost!
It's a shame though that our boys on the US Soccer Team aren't celebrated as much as those on regular football, Tennis or even golf. Gosh even Track and Field get some airplay! Soccer gets tossed aside like the dirty wet rag no one wants to use.
My hubby has a theory, it's simply because there are not enough advertisers who will not get airtime the way they would for all the other sports. I think he's right.
Congratulations to the US Soccer team on your Gold Cup win! Hurrah!
