the point of the commercial was to show the disrespect our national team gets when they play, yet we can overcome it all with the help of gatorade. i personally didnt heard the take me out the ball game, but if it is there, its probally just to add more of an american bias.

there isnt any point in getting upset about it.

The point of playing that song is to show how much america is disrespected in terms of soccer, when you think american sports you think baseball do you not? the song in the background is just showing that "this is a whole new ballgame" baseball players dont get that kind of disrespect and they were trying to illustrate that....

although IMO baseball > soccer
but personally I think this gatorade ad is > any other that they have done so far.

Soccer isnt using it, they are simply just showing what it says at the end of their ad "this is a whole new ballgame"

and soccer isnt respected because europe has long been the dominating force in soccer, and actually when you talk rivalries in american sports they dont even come close to the intensity that europeans have when it comes to "their game" this and our longstanding relationship with being > the world, mixes together with europe being a driving force, they hate american soccer players, and their intensity is so much greater then anything our athletes see as are their fans intensity. I hope im not just rambling.... but all of this mix to create a very hostile enviroment in europe for our boys who kick the ball.

how is it a whole new ballgame whats different about it this one commercial is not going to earn american soccer respect, if we wnat respect then we have to shut up and go kick some butt, not make a commercial on why we should get respect or show that we dont get respect. i guess thats the way i see it.
