According to this interesting article about the ever-increasing popularity of soccer in the United States, 125,000 tickets have been sold to the World Cup within the States. Do you have your tickets yet?

While I will not be attending theWorld Cup, I will be watching as much as possible, and I can’t help but think this U.S. team might just have what it takes to make a deep run. After beating Spain and taking Brazil to the absolute limit in the Confederations Cup, expectations have never been higher, I just hope our guys (::cough, cough:: Landon Donovan) don’t choke under the pressure. What are your thoughts regarding the 2010 World Cup in South Africa?
