More Americans watched the U.S. team's valiant fight against Belgium on Tuesday than the NBA final and the World Series final. And that game was in the middle of a workday afternoon. Pretty good for nobody caring.
The United States' run in the World Cup came to an end with a heartbreaking 2-1 loss to Belgium on Tuesday. Goalkeeper Tim Howard came out a winner, though, notching 16 saves -- the most in a World Cup match since 1966.
The future of America in the World Cup will be determined tomorrow. How many people will actually stop and watch? Is this comparable to March Madness? Now way, that's every year (this is every four) and our national pride is on the line.
