We all know that soccer fans are a different breed than your typical, run-of-the-mill North American sports fan.
Part of that is just because of the nature of the game ? 90 minutes of constant action with no breaks can lead to a, shall we say, ?focus? that is often lacking at other stateside sporting events.
But another part of that is because, until very recently, there was no bigger outsider in sports than the North American soccer fan.
