Speaking of the Americans, I am increasingly rooting for them to go far in this World Cup. Probably won't get too far, but I hope they do, hahaha.

Basketball is very popular outside the US and so is baseball. Baseball is very popular in latin America, South America and some Asian nations. I'm guessing you are from Europe where baseball isn't really played?
And as far as the European Champions League...if they are clearly, undoubtably and inarguably the best league, with the best players in the WORLD, then I don't see why they couldn't choose to call themself "world champions"
I still don't see the big deal with leagues like the NBA and MLB calling the winner World Champions....they clearly and undoubtably are the best in world at that sport. No one disputes that. So the winner every year...is the best team in the world. That is a fact.
I can't even tell you what league would be second to the NBA or MLB...they are so far behind in talent.

Yes Altidore's return would be boost. Fingers crossed :-) Klinsmann and the US that simply works. Although he is a foreign coach he is well respected and adapted pretty well. He understands the culture, the way of life, the mentality and so on. Think that's absolute crucial for having success. He isn't a stranger at all and its not only about football and coaching. Most people in Germany like him and I think he is a great ambassador. Similar to Bernhard Langer, different characters though.
