Here’s a quote from a June 11, 2006, profile of Brian Ching in the Honolulu Advertiser.

He is the first from Hawai’i to accomplish so much: to play for the U.S. National Team, score at the elite level, get drafted by a Major League Soccer team, and most recently, be selected for a roster spot for the World Cup, an event so popular worldwide that it has been described as “March Madness times 3 billion.”

Emphasis mine.
