Find a way that US culture such as:

would be popular everywhere in the world by 2004.

No, American football is only in America I think and baseball is only in America and the far east.
Also you then have some nations which hate anything American.

America TV shows and Mcdonalds are quite popular in the UK but baseball and american football is virtually unknown. I assume its largely the same in other countries.

yep, I frequently go by the largest and most successful (by far) Belgian baseball team ... their "stadium" seats about 150 spectators and during absolute top games they manage to fill about a third of that.
And by getting results like these, they surpass the number 1 American football team by quite a bit.
The artificial attempt to jumpstart Am. Football in Europe ... by setting up entirely American/Canadian teams in several European capitols was a huge failure. No one cared. Exactly 1 native (a Spanish player) was allowed to play ... about 3 minutes.
I forced myself to watch at least 3 games and was completely bored out of my skull after 15 minutes of ...
x seconds of action (with X being between 5 and 30)
y seconds of setting up the line 2 meters further along (with y being between 30 and 300)
as far as egg shaped balls go ... I prefer rugby by far
you'll need a pretty huge POD to get Europeans to like Am football ... probably even some pretty hefty rules changes
