Where urban meets suburban...
All of a sudden, everyone is a soccer fan. Very odd.
There seems to be a bit of a sheep mentality going on. Much like the Superbowl. The attitude is "Well, everyone is following the soccer games, so I guess I should as well." Most of the people who now claim to be following the games, won't even utter the word "soccer" when the games are over.
They probably won't but that doesn't mean people aren't enjoying the World Cup at the moment.
Not odd -- Americans are just catching up to the rest of the world ; maybe we'll be able to read a map soon and understand that Georgia is also a country and not just a state!Plus -- Fifa has done some great marketing and our team is becoming from decent to Good!
