Great perspective, M.G. Siegler. My family has enjoyed watching these games, and would enjoy it even more if U.S. were participating. But we’ve got a big problem concerning soccer, with it being prohibitively expensive for athletes who might otherwise play. In the U.S. it’s still primarily a well-to-do white person’s sport, and until that changes we probably won’t stand a chance against countries where its more universal and accessible.
