No I'm talking about the biggest sporting event in the world. Not the Super Bowl. Not the World Series. Not even the Stanley Cup. It's some game called the World Cup. Yeah, I've never heard of it either. But many have. Soccer teams from all around the world will compete in Brazil this year. Apparently the US will be there too. We have a soccer team? Who knew?
