Soccer is booming in U.S., just not at homegrown level

October 7, 2009

This week is something of a respite for yours truly.

For the first time in weeks, there are no World Cup qualifers, no Champions League or Europa League games, and only a handful of midweek games.

This means that I have a rare week 'off' from the world of international soccer. To keep track of all the games going on, it will only take me about six hours a day instead of the 18+ per day I've been logging most weeks.
