Umm... no. If you have no exposure to something then there is no reason to know anything about it. Magic the Gathering tournaments get damn near as much time on ESPN as soccer does here. You don't understand. It's not that soccer isn't big here. Soccer is barely existent here. Soccer - here - is something that little kids play when they can't play the other sports.
That's not the point. Even though none of you are exposed to much football, you all know full well how massive it is around the globe. Is there a single american poster on here who doesn't know that on a global scale football is obscenely popular? Even if you do think it is completely dumb. Lets see a show of hands.
