True, Americans generally consider American football to be our “national” pastime, but soccer is quickly growing in popularity. And although football dominates television ratings in the U.S., the FIFA World Cup is by far the world’s most widely viewed sporting event. In fact, the final match of the 2006 FIFA World Cup was watched by over 715 million viewers.
Well, we’ve got a feeling that ESPN’s latest commercial is going to inspire many more Americans to tune in this year. Go ahead, press play, and be prepared to watch it over and over, and over, again. If this doesn’t create a sense of national pride while sending chills down your spine… well, then, there’s no way in hell you’re American.
