As one who devotes my time fully to Football, Hockey, and Baseball, I must admit don't follow this stuff much, despite my love for the game of soccer.
This is a tad confusing to me. From what I understand, the FIFA World Cup is THE big thing, the real deal, the main event, etc. when it comes to nations competing for the crown of being the ultimate champion in soccer. This is correct, yes?
That being said, then what are these other "Cups"? What is their significance? Is it something so big, that everyone in America should be following it? I have heard of the Confederations cup, but again, do not understand its significance in the grand scheme of things.
I love soccer, and will emphatically scream my head off for the USA, but by golly, I must know is it really worth my energy to get myself emotionally invested in this with all the other sports.
