Non-appreciation of futbol is relegated, imo, to more northern regions of the USA and Canada.
The further south you go, the more of an appreciation for futbol there is. Of course in Florida, Tejas, and California soccer will be big. But even in the southern red neck states it is not as tossed off as it is by the more northern states/Canada. They have hockey anyway.
for Lationos in Florida, soccer will always be at 1st, they don't even know if any other sport exists, maybe baseball. I dont blame them, they are all 5 feet tall, Messi-like, couldn't be bothered to understand something irrelevant for them.
