Fall Sundays in America aren’t for soccer, right?
They’re for the NFL. Maybe the baseball playoffs. And if its soccer you want, the European or Mexican leagues. El Clasico from Spain. The best football in the world.
Anything but Major League Soccer. Especially when Sunday night’s Seattle-Portland match went head to head with the New Orleans-San Diego NFL game and two baseball playoff games.
Maybe the TV ratings for MLS weren’t there, but the people sure were. How about 66,452 to be exact?
There’s no more dismissing or ignoring or failing to mention MLS, though the ever-present critics will find some way to spin their ant-soccer rhetoric. But the masses of folks who have bought in will grow because pro soccer in the USA is here to stay. It matters. It is the world’s game, with a North American flair.
