The whole world goes crazy over the World Cup, except the US. Even if we won the World Cup (which doesn't seem likely during the next century), it would probably be greeted with ambivalence.
It always seems like out attitude is "We didn't invent football (soccer), so we're not interested in it! Give us our baseball or (American) football any day!!"
Personally, I think our football should be renamed passball as that what it really is, and soccer should be the only football. And where did the term "soccer" come from anyway? (I know I could look it up, but it's more fun postulating.
