US mostly ignores World Cup global futbol fiesta

GERMANY -- The Futbol (soccer) World Cup is on and worth watching. Crazy fans, and fun games.

Mexico plays Iran Sunday at 8:30am on Univision. This Mexican futbol fan, and many across Arizona and the SW will be cheering on Mexico.

Even the USA is said to have a chance this year. But will the US team get booed and scorned by international crowds due to the Iraq war, Bush/Cheney, border militarization, etc.? It wouldn't be surprising.

Interesting how the World Cup is such a huge global event, but most in the US hardly know. Is it another example of US isolation from the global community?
