    Great ratings especially considering Mexico weren't playing.

    Not too shabby. Every year, soccer hates seem to become quieter and quieter or simply they are dying from the face of the earth. LOL

    Most of the games I watch are on the Spanish station. Because I love there enthusiasm about the game. When the Metrostars first started I would go to a lot of games. I had three ways to go. I drove, or I could take the command bus line here in Brooklyn to the game or I could take a car to the port authority then take the bus to the game. Most of the time I took a car to the port authority. Why, because I liked going to the game with a bus load of Latinos because it was fun. Or I would take the command bus because they parked near the race track. Then I walk to Giants stadium see the game. It ended around 10:30 pm and walked to the race track and bet the last three races and go back to Brooklyn with the old people. Then hear them talking about there big loses or wins. There loses were the most 50 to 100 bucks. My wins and loses were thousands I never told them that. But that was fun also.
