i don't see it around me, baseball,  am foobal, bball, those are major games i see kids play, soccer and lacrosse are  little played,. girls play soccer in gym class, as boys play am. football, but not in every scool. actually living in nyc i see ppl play soccer a lot more than in other cities, for 2 reasons, there is a lot of scholls\kids here, and there are many immigrants here that played soccer in their native countries. but if we take entire america, soccer isn't nearly as popular as traditionl american games.
i know plenty of european immigrants, that watch , and follow soccer, but their kids for the most part couldn't care less about soccer.

Over here on the west coast it's pretty big.  Maybe you're unaware of the New York Red Bulls, your local MLS team?  Or in the 60's 70's and early 80's the NY Cosmos, the American league team that the great Pele' played for?  I almost guarantee you that where you live more kids play pee-wee soccer than pee-wee football.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

I'm amazed at how the people running this one charity have so effectively marketed their cause. From corporate and special merchandising tags to professional sports, those pink ribbons are everywhere. I'd be curious to see how much goes to breast cancer patients and research.

Pleased to meet you. Hope you guess my name.
