Which would you want?

Soccer season recently started for me, and when that happens, I tend to devote a lot of time to soccer. I'll wake up early to watch EPL games, I'll watch the USA international friendlies, and start following the sport online as well. I followed the World Cup like a freak last year and I'm still lamenting the fact that the next World Cup is 3 years away. I've probably watched that Landon Donovan Goal Reaction video about 30 times by now, and I'll probably watch it thirty more by next year. 

I know many people that regularly participate here at BHGP are either soccer enthusiasts or at least like to follow soccer every four years when the World Cup comes around. I'm going to assume that at least 95% of the regular users on this site cheer for the USA for the World Cup. I'm also going to boldly assume that almost everyone here cheers for Iowa to win a national championship every year, whatever sport is happening at the moment. 

As a lifelong soccer fan, I'm fairly curious as to how much the sport is growing here in the States, and I've been bouncing this question around in my head for a while.
