ledude, there is a good bit of truth in that. Look at the womens team, they won big and it set of a firestorm for womens soccer, but now seems to be fading a bit as you don't hear as much about them anymore. We do need to win the big one, but unfortunately it might be awhile. Bad media coverage of our own pro games and college matches, along with odd(due to time zone differences) gametime of foreign matches does not help those of us that love the game. So yes, getting some press by winning the big one would help, nobody wants to hear about the loser's!...as my hero Patton would say "Americans love a winner and will not tolerate a loser. Americans play to win all the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed........ because the very thought of losing is hateful to Americans."
