It does though. It is popular in the US. It is one of the most played and attended sports.

Didn't say it was the most popular sport did I?

As far as I can gather, soccer couldn't win over Americans the honest way so they decided to move in scabs.

That would be really crazy news given that there are no MLB teams in Indiana.

It was big news because it was something that had never happened before and will in all likelihood never happen again.
I'm not pretending TH. It was not huge news over here, which I hasten to point out is actually part of the world. It's a pretty reasonable, based on the replies in this thread from other people outside the British Isles, to conclude that it's maybe not quite as big a story as you perceive it to be.

Imagine how much bigger their profile would be if The Beatles were from there. It's easy if you try.

It's amazing how unmoved they are at the possibility of British news about British sports not being as hyped around the world as the British think. It almost reminds me of American stereotypes who can't imagine a world that doesn't revolve around them.
