Soccer in the US has taken an absolute absurd jump over the past two decades. The problem is that too many people somehow thought that it would be an overnight transition from complete non-factor to world power.

It'll be interesting to see what kinds of heights soccer reaches in my lifetime...but there's still a long ways to go. Television ratings aren't good and I don't think they'll start to even compete with the NHL's current levels for at least another decade.
