    Meh, I only get excited about it when it gets close to Champions League finals and during the actual World Cup 16 and on. I don't follow MSL at all, but I'll stop flicking through the channels if I see a Liverpool or England NT match going on. I played a lot up in to my late 20s and was a super hard core NASL fan back in the late 70s and early 80s. So, the love of the game runs deep, but life gets in the way a lot these days.

    Besides, I tune in to most other sports too when the playoffs get interesting. It's pretty impossible to stay totally up to date on every sport I enjoy all season long so I bounce from sport to sport as playoffs and championships come and go.

    USA Versus Mexico tomorrow for the Gold Cup North/Central America Championship. Mexico's looking pretty good. I'd like to see Freddie Ado have a good game as well, time for Landon D to pass the torch..

    Japan stunned Germany then USA beats Brasil. Woot woot!

    Hey, I found someone that sells old (remakes) NASL jerseys. I just ordered a Minnesota Kicks kit. They were my first beloved home team back in the late 70s.

    Big Liverpool fan here - disappointing opening result but lots of new players coming in so need a bit of time. Some promising signs of how the King wants us playing though, the first half was great!

    Hoping with Arsenal losing players to transfers/injuries/suspensions we really take it to them this weekend.

    Nice to see some football banter on a skate forum!

    I went to my first Chicago Fire game this year. Although it's the MLS and we suck this year, I enjoyed it. I usually wasn't ever a soccer fan, but I gotta say, FIFA 12 got me into it. Definitely will be going to more matches next season and just being more involved with watching soccer in general.

    I'd rather watch a good game

    Also, none of those teams listed are international so I'm still confused. (Well I skim read the teams and didn't see any).
