Similarly, the Grey Cup has little meaning or importance to most Americans, save Doug Flutie.
NFL football is the most popular professional sport in the U.S. It is an obsession for many of us. The Giants are playing the Eagles today. I'll be sitting on the couch wearing my official NY Giants uniform jersey (number 56 with my name on the back).
I was on a cruise when the World Cup matches were last played. Just about the whole crew was jazzed and couldn't wait for their breaks so they could watch TV. They had the games playing wherever there was a TV. Personally I have no use for soccer but it didn't bother me. Actually I enjoyed seeing the crew from different nations trash talking each other's teams.
