While it doesn't carry the attention that baseball, football, basketball or hockey do, soccer does have its strong points. Check a game out some time, but realize that Americans play a much different game than the version played by the rest of the world.
Also, keep in mind that the US doesn't really need to catch up to the rest of the world. Outside of the US, it's the sport that dominates everything, as fans are obsessed with their team and religiously check in with the bookies to see the latest lines. It's an obsession. And while soccer wiill never be the #1 sport here, that doesn't mean it can't have a great following. The success of the 2010 World Cup was huge, and now ESPN, FOX and the other sports networks are all over international soccer, helping the sport gain even more popularity here.
