What is the history of sport?
The history of sport can teach us a great deal about social changes and about the nature of sport itself. Sport seems to involve basic human skills being developed and exercised for their own sake, in parallel with being exercised for their usefulness. It also shows how society has changed its beliefs and therefore there are changes in the rules. Of course, as we go further back in history the dwindling evidence makes the theories of the origins and purposes of sport difficult to support. Nonetheless, its importance in human history is undeniable.

When will soccer become a major sport in the US?
It isn't a major sport in the US but around the whole entire world it is the most popular sport. And it will probably become a major sport in the time bein since the tans have been going up since the 1990s and so has the TV ratings...............And American Football, Baseball, etc. have been around the US for a long time which is one of the reasons why those are major sports while the US is just adopting to Soccer. Surprisngly, soccer is said to be recongnized as the fastest-growing sport in colleges and high schools in the United States, and of the 18 million people in the US who play soccer 78% of that number is from people under the age of 18, so this is a big sport for elementary, middle, and high schools, even though most people think this is a slow pace and boring game to watch on TV......it is very exciting if you're the one who is out on the field playing it ......... so yes i think Soccer will become a major sport in the US in around 20 years because it isn't very popular right now from mostly the exposure that it has in the US......
