    In my many hours of sitting by my lonesome self on friday and saturday nights I think about what could be.

    For the last few weeks I have been wondering about all the talk about the
    3 major sports (MLB, NBA, NFL)(If you remember QF with SAS, they only talked about the 3 major sports, not hockey for a while) and soccer not being included in them.

    Around BS there is talk of, When will soccer be one of the major sports in America, How long until..... Well it won't ever happen if there is no action. Why not consider soccer a major sport now.

    For me whenever I hear one of my friends talking about the major sports or nascar (which by the way isn't a sport) I am going to ask them, "Why don't you consider soccer one of the major sports?" and when they say because soccer is a stupid sport I will say "Tell that to the countries outside of the US."

    So why not just call it a major sport and maybe in a few years instead of a few decades it will be a major sport in the US.

    Maybe they should put the word "major" in the league's name. That should brainwash the populous.

    We just need to get crazy about soccer, make a scene, tell everyone about it, hold huge rallies for our teams and make it so ordinary people can't walk five feet without being hit by MLS imagery. MLS doesn't have the ad budget, but we have voices to shout it from the rooftops and hands to make some banners.

    there's nothing in those other 3 "major" leagues that I'd want in MLS.

    I'd take their attendances and television revenue.

    Amen brother.

    As for the attendance and television revenue that can happen if we do the quote above.

    I'd take stuff like that, but there are better things to base it on than those 3 soulless leagues. I understand "modern soccer" is the future, but doesn't mean I have to like it.
