Why do Americans publicly express their dislike football/soccer and take pride in it? I understand not liking it but taking pride in looking down at other countries who do doesn’t make sense to me. Like it or not football is the most popular sport in the world and nothing is bigger than the World Cup. If people don’t care, fine but every 4 years I always see the “soccer jokes” and “we Americans play contact sports” and stupid comments like that.

The rest of the world looks down on us on a routine basis, and for more ridiculous reasons. We're entitled to think little of something, like a sport. Also, there are many things uniquely American. One of the less significant of these things is, in my opinion, our distaste for soccer vs. other sports.
