Your world is dying. I guess that's why you folks thought it would help if you elected Cheeto.

7. Maybe but the one that might replace it is filled with people who cant run a 1st world country

who's people come from the worlds biggest shit holes so when you cheer on the death of "my world" remember that the people who will be replacing good Americans are for the most part savages.

9. by "get out more" do you mean I should sit in front of the TV and

watch foreigners play girls soccer?
you aren't talking to someone who likes to watch sports, most especially men playing a girls sport.
Baseball and hockey? ok thats different. And I much prefer to play baseball than watch it, it can be quite boring to watch.
Oh, and I'm not man enough anymore to actually PLAY hockey so there's that. I like to deliver ass kicking, not receive them, and I'm a little past my prime on that point so it's my time to sit it out when it comes to hockey.
But soccer?
Please....

10. Just pointing out times have changed.

No need to watch foreigners play "girls soccer." Americans are the best at it (although not by as great a margin as was once the case). Women's World Cup is next year, and the US will be slight favorites. On the boys side, we've a good ways to go. Not qualifying for the World Cup (from the easiest region) was embarrassing, and the men's team needs to get its act together. Soccer is really the only team sport I watch any more, but hey, to each their own!

My point was that the "nobody (in the US) watches soccer" trope is out of date. The sport has been growing like crazy for many years now. Portland Thorns FC, a women's pro team in the NWSL, outdraws 13 NHL and 3 MLB teams...and that's a "girls soccer" team.

I agree completely about baseball (softball for me...I'm female) being a lot more fun to play than watch, with one caveat: at the park, it's a blast to watch. On TV, not so much. Hockey is exciting, but for some reason, I usually only watch during NHL playoff season, and then only sporadically. I fell out of love with basketball years ago and have never liked American football much.

I used to be a pretty serious bike racer (Cat 1, in fact...highest level), and I've recently gotten back into it in one of the "old ladies" brackets (I'm in my mid-30's). That and long-range shooting satisfies my rather high competitive nature. I played soccer when I was young, but while I had the endurance (see above: bike racer), my skills were pretty feeble. I loved softball and was a good fielder, but I'm small and my hitting "power" was comical. =P
