The USA, culturally, not just in sports, has long been isolationist. Historically, they have displayed little interest in European affairs (it took the attack on Pearl Harbour, and Germany declaring war on them to get them into WW2, remember, and even then, a significant part of the population were still against it). Their education is based very much on domestic affairs and history. This is hardly surprising when you consider how the country was born - from revolution against a European colonial power. It is against this psyche you have to consider their attitudes today. As another ex-pat brit (based in Texas), I see examples of a lack of knowledge of European matters almost every day. But then how many of us Brits/Europeans have in-depth knowledge of American history and their affairs?
