It's the most-popular sport in the world but America hasn't shown much interest. Our kids play from an early age but that doesn't translate into watching the game on TV. Until Sunday afternoon. The audience for Sunday afternoon's game against Portugal tied for the biggest-ever to watch a soccer game--24.7 million viewers!
Admittedly, the tie was heartbreaking (they HAD it WON?!), but we'll all be watching Thursday when we take on Germany. A win or a tie and we advance to the knockout round!
