I think in respect to soccer, we are caught in a catch 22...until we figure out how to get our best young lads playing soccer at an early age instead of football or basketball, we will not be able to develop a great national team that can compete with the rest of the world on world class platform (which makes this recent performance that much more amazing)

the parallel is how the rest of the world focused on basketball and now the United States gets beat regularly in world class competition, when basketball should be "our sport" or how baseball has declined in our country because our youth want to make the big bucks in football and basketball

we have to have a "national will" to dominate soccer

now if i could just figure out a way to get to the World Cup next year on a cruise ship
