More on the World Cup! People Are Watching!
The US Mens game against Ghana has reportedly generated over 11 million viewers for ESPN on Monday night. If you consider the online viewership, streaming, and DVR recordings I’ve seen numbers as high as 16 million out there. It’s another sign that soccer is truly on the rise in America and it’s nice because I now have something to tangibly throw into Ray’s and Turtle’s face on the podcast when they sip the Haterade.
So which cities provided the most viewership? They were, in order: Washington DC, New York, Hartford-New Haven, Boston, Columbus, Baltimore, Providence, Orlando, San Francisco, and Norfolk.
Sadly, no Philadelphia on the list. We’ll have to step it up on Sunday against Portugal because while our Union may stink, the Union as a whole is on the rise.
