It is hard not to get involved isnt it when it is such a huge deal in Europe, Asia, South America and Africa. It is bigger than the Olympics for many countries. Ask any country in the world if they'd prefer to top the Olympic medal tally or win the World Cup and every country except USA, China and Australia would say the world cup I reckon!
Personally, I still prefer the English Premier League and the Champions League as spectacles.
One thing about the USA though, no-one gets close to the spectacle and pure financial clout of the Superbowl.
It's a shame it's your first taste.
Not a great deal of atmosphere at this one.
If you want to go on a bit of a deep dive then check out the highlights of the 2014 semi final between Brazil and Germany.
The mighty Brazil were hosting it that year.
Possibly one of the biggest shocks in World sport history.
