    Well there's actually 2 of us, but unfortunately since I don't
have cable or satellite I only get to see the 1 or 2 games each
weekend that the broadcast networks run when there's nothing else to
show :(

    Actually, I'm a little surprised that soccer does so poorly in the
TV ratings, since so many kids play in junior leagues here. I think
the networks have a conspiracy against soccer anyway, because they
can't have any commercial breaks until halftime.
