Steelers rated tops for 'likeability'

There is no doubt World Cup soccer has captured the interest of fans everywhere, with plenty of support for Team USA all across the country.

And the next question they had is if you didn't have an allegiance to an NFL team, and lived outside the U.S., what team would be the best one to root for.

So the editorial staff at Fox Sports' cover32 did their power rankings, and the Steelers were tops in "likeability" for the following reason:
