I'm not sure the majority of Americans really care about the World Cup. Hell most Americans don't even know that the rest of the world refer to soccer as "football."

The majority of us Americans don't care about soccer! So why the hell would we want to host a world cup? Hell I don't even know who won the last world cup they just had.
