The World Cup might be drawing record viewers, but American football is still where it’s at in the United States.
The highest rated game so far has been USA and Ghana, which drew 19.4 million Americans, making it the most watched soccer game in America ever.
However, it represents only a fraction of the number of Americans who tuned in for this year’s Super Bowl, a record-setting 106.5 million people.
I’ve never been a huge fan of the Super Bowl anyhow. I was only ever into it for the BBQ’s and parties that surrounded the event, and I’ve missed several throughout my lifetime.
Then I discovered real football, the game I grew up playing as a kid. I called it soccer back then and will do the same for the remainder of this piece in order to avoid confusion.
