The only exception is my youngest daughter but she's always been the danging and cheer queen so soccer wasn't ever something she had time for. As far as I can tell by these packed soccer fields in the spring and fall, Colorado loves this sport. So why do we rank so low as far as the best states for soccer fans go?
