He'd be on the Venezuelan team.
There are so many good teams out there though, that would be so much more fun to watch than the Olympics.
Exactly. The WCOB would be awesome. People jumped on me about the Soccer comment. I know Soccer is more popular now. I just think if this Cup takes off it will be come the biggest sport in the world. Or maybe I'm just crazy.
You're crazy, trust me. Soccer will be #1 for a LONG time. I can't see anythign taking it over. By making it once every 4 years for the World Cup in a sport where almost any country can field a competitive team, I can't see another sport gaining more popularity. The poorest country in the world can run soccer leagues. Pretty much you need a net and a ball. Same with basketball, which is why it's popular almost everywhere in the world. Baseball you need so much equipment, hockey you need ice and even more equipment, football you need a ton of equipment.
I don't even like soccer but I get so into it during the World Cup when a country I have in my blood is involved. I love baseball and would much rather watch the WCOB then soccer, but in reality, soccer is probbaly 100 times more popular than baseball worldwide.
