I HAVE EVEN PEOPLE ASKING ME WHO DON'T EVEN WATCH SOCCER OR PAY ATTENTION TO SOCCER ASK ME ABOUT WHAT I THINK ABOUT THE USA NATIONAL TEAM'S CHANCES AND WATCHING THE GAME AND TELLING ME HOW THEY FELT ABOUT IT, IT SPREADS THE CULTURE OF SOCCER EVERYWHERE.

I THINK IT'S BEEN FANTASTIC YOU KNOW THE AMOUNT OF GOALS THAT HAVE BEEN SCORED IS GOOD FOR THE NEUTRAL FAN. PEOPLE THAT DON'T GENERALLY WATCH SOCCER WEEK TO WEEK GET AROUND IT'S A CHANCE FOR THEM TO WATCH IT AND KIND OF GETTING ENTHRALLED IN IT WITH THE AMOUNT OF GOALS BEING SCORED.

I THINK ITS REALLY EXCITING AND THESE YOUNG KIDS SEE THAT AND WANT TO BE A PART OF THAT AND REALLY HONESTLY THOUGH ED I THINK ITS THE GREATNESS OF OUR COUNTRY.

Back with the Broncos they'll be cheering for the USA against Belguim but which team will ultimately come away with the World Cup?

I SAY GERMANY WIN IT IN THE END. I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE GERMANY AND ARGENTINA  I WANT IT TO BE A GERMANY ARGENTINA FINAL BUT I FEEL GERMANY WILL WIN IT FOR SURE.

I HOPE ITS ARGENTINA BECAUSE OF MY DAD BEING FROM BUENAS ARIES BUT I REALLY BELIEVE GERMANY HAS WHAT IT TAKES TO WIN IT.

And it's fitting that these Bronco players are selling fireworks because after all, World Cup Fever is defiantely becoming explosive.
