There is plenty of futbol on television in the US, and there has been for a long time. It's on Univision, TV Azteca and Telemundo - also Fox Sports Espanol, Fox Soccer Channel, Gol TV, and Setanta Sports. ESPN now carries the Champions Leage. I used to watch the World Cup on Spanish language television because that was the only place that carried it. Goooooooooooooooool! If anyone thinks futbol is not popular in the US, wait until Mexico plays Argentina this weekend. In some places there won't be a person on the street, and there will be crowds in bars and restaurants.
