I have to agree that in my lifetime soccer will not be a major sport in the United States. However, while it is not the "sport of the future" in this country, it is a sport with a future. Changing demographics are making it so. I can cite certain high schools in Football mad Texas, that have no football team, but do have a soccer team. And this is driven purely by an ever increasing Hispanic population. Just as the Irish turned Rounders into Baseball in this country, Hispanics are bringing soccer to the forefront. Who knows, maybe we will eventually Americanize it into something different?
Also, I have to respond to your comment about Baseball not being boring. In what other sport can you go to the stadium and see people reading in the stands? That's how slow and boring it is. You may like Baseball, and that's OK. But exciting it is not.
