    I went to Thailand a few years ago and went on a three-day trek into the jungle. In the jungle was a camp where some Thai people took care of the trekkers, making food, etc. Most, from what I understand, had never been outside the edges of the national forest.

    There was a kid, about 6 years old wearing a Jordan jersey. I asked him if he knew who Michael Jordan was. He looked at me like I was nuts and said, "The best basketball player ever, duh!"

    That wasn't the only Jordan jersey I saw in Thailand, but it was the most surprising.

    For the record, while I was in Asia, I never saw a Ronaldinho kit.

    Don't let popularity be confused with fame. I don't think Ronaldinho is more famous than Beckham. Soccer fans know them both and a lot more non-soccer fans know Beckham than know Ronaldinho.

    This World Cup and any NBA finals.

    The World Cup because not many countries like Ghana have a vested interest in the NBA.

    Damn, you seem to have your own fan club on this site and no one gave you any love on this one? That's good stuff.
