I occasionally do comparisons of the public's interest in topics as expressed in google web searches. Ann Coulter has been creating a bit of controversy with attacks on soccer (called football in most other English speaking countries). Coulter venter her hatred of soccer here and here.
While I don't really care what Coulter, or any other pundit, thinks about soccer, lacrosse, rugby, baseball, basketball, 43-man squamish, curling, hurling, or bean bag, I thought it would be interesting to compare how much the world is interested in Ann Coulter vs. the World Cup. The chart below gives a good indication, but you can get much more in-depth information about the comparison by clicking on the Google Trends link below the graph.
