It's been an offseason full of soccer for Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. Back in April, Luck took in a soccer match with teammate Coby Fleener in London where he watched West Ham vs. Liverpool play.

How do you top watching a soccer match in London? By going to the World Cup -- and that's exactly what Luck did this week.

The Colts quarterback was in Brazil all week and apparently he was willing to take pictures with anyone who asked, like these guys.

Funny that the guy above mentioned that Luck's a big Clint Dempsey fan because...

Recife is where the United States played Germany on Thursday and it's also where this guy ran into Luck -- who obviously packed a lot of U.S. team jerseys.

This hotel party then got awesome because Luck AND Steelers lineman David DeCastro showed up. The two played together at Stanford.

Luck didn't just watch soccer while he was in Brazil, he also played it. Don't worry Colts fans, this didn't turn into a Robert Edwards situation.

Wait, we don't have a picture of Luck in a striped U.S. jersey yet. Can we get one of those Twitter? We can! Great.

So why is Luck such a huge soccer fan? He explained it to GQ.com in April.

"I grew up in Europe and soccer was the first organized game I played," Luck said. "When we moved back to the U.S. in the middle of fourth grade, I switched to American football, and stopped playing competitively until [Stanford], when I played intramurals."

Luck on a college intramural soccer team? Jim Harbaugh probably loved that.

UPDATE: Luck might be moving to Brazil. OK, he's probably not, but it's been over a week and he's still there. The reason for that? The Colts quarterback is hanging around so that he can attend the U.S. match vs. Belgium on Tuesday.
