"I think we have our sports within our own culture that are huge with baseball, football, basketball, and hockey. Those are the sports in America that we grow up with and soccer isn't really there yet"

- Claudio Reyna

About this Quote

Claudio Reyna is suggesting that the 4 major sports in America (baseball, football, basketball, and hockey) are deeply ingrained in the culture of the country. He suggests that soccer is not as popular in the United States as these other sports, and has not yet accomplished the very same level of cultural significance. This might be due to the truth that soccer is not as commonly played in the United States as it is in other countries, which the American sports culture is more concentrated on the four significant sports. Reyna's quote suggests that soccer has actually not yet achieved the exact same level of cultural significance as the other four significant sports, but that it might potentially become more popular in the future.
