When the 2014 World Cup concludes, soccer isn’t going to disappear the way it typically has. Major League Soccer is growing in influence and popularity in traditional sports cities. More significant, major networks such as ESPN, Fox, and NBC Sports have adopted the sport.

And if the 21st century has taught us any important sports lesson, it’s that it’s futile to fight ESPN.
Baseball, meanwhile, appears to have the same demographic problems with its base as the Republican Party: It’s too old. It’s too white. It’s perceived as too square.
