    Some of our daughter’s friends at college are “international students,” one of her closest is from Turkey and together they watched several games, their interest and enthusiasm proving infectious! While I usually watch a bit of the World Cup (the last couple rounds of games), this was the first time I followed the European tournament. Perhaps similar situations occur with other students. I was proud of the fact that our daughter knew more about the games and players than I did!

    Apropos the question of whether or not “soccer will ever become that popular as a spectator sport here,” I just came across (via bookforum.com) this article by Felipe Fernández-Armesto: http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/story.asp?sectioncode=26&storycode=402522&c=1

    US TV announcers don’t convey the excitement of the game. Listen to the guys on Univision or Telemundo; even if you have almost no Spanish, you’ll get the point right away.
