ABSTRACT
The article presents an interview with Anthony LaPaglia, Australia native and part owner of Sydney FC, regarding Australia's prospects in the soccer world cup. On being asked whether his American friends make fun of him for being a soccer fan, he says that they used to but not anymore. He remembers not so long ago being so pissed off at ESPN because every time they'd mention soccer, which was rare, the commentators would be so dismissive and rude. On Australia recently qualifying for its first World Cup since 1974, he says that he almost cried with joy.
