I know in the DC area soccer and lacrosse are two more obscure sports that there is a ton of following for.
It's interesting to hear about that, b/c many people would have thought that the MLS would have died after its first few seasons, but it didn't. Unfortunately, it is liked as much as it is around the world. Maybe if the MLS managed to get Ronaldo, more would end up watching like they would in the UEFA leagues. On a sidenote, the WNBA will probably be nexting in finding its place.
