World Cup Draw

I was just curious if theres other people especially in the states that even care this is taking place today?

I've been counting down the days to see who my boys will be facing in the group stages. But damn if I've found anyone within a 100 mile radius of Orlando that even cares. Well except for the occasional brittish tourist I bump into.

Its really sad that a country this large with the talent we have ( regardless of the credit they dont get internationally) doesnt generate a strong sense of partiotism like the olympics do.

I took the entire month off in 98 to catch all the games I could and in 02 I changed my sleeping habits so that I could be awake to watch games live instead of tape delay. Then I'd go into work and there was like 1 person out of 25000 that even knew it was going on.

Hey canada's fine with me. I'm just glad other people know this is taking place.

why you would want a tough draw for england?
I'd love to see the US and England in a group together. I think would be a good game or a murdering depending if the US was in Awe mode at the time.

theres so many good teams this time around. I'm just hoping the US gets a chance to spank mexico 1 more time in world cup match.
(No offense to Mexico its just fun to beat your rival)

I'm in the US, waiting for the draw

I could care less about the US though, my eyes are on England

i will say one thing about the us manager though...

here's a quote of his earlier...

when asked about:

Americans are 1-7-2 under Arena in games played in Europe...


"Who cares? It doesn't mean anything," Arena said. "We lost to some good teams in Europe. I don't think the 'in Europe' is an issue. It's still neutral (ground) regardless, with the exception of Germany."

if he truly thinks this he is in for a mighty shock when they play a european team

Yeah just dont get ahead of yourself and look past us. Your likely to wind up like Portugal.

I think hes saying that trying to keep the confidence thing up you know?

keeping confidence is one thing but if he actually believes that he's dead wrong

we never have home crowd advantage in the states

I watched the game in may. I was hoping for a better showing from the US but it takes me back to the " in awe mode" comment I made earlier.

the england team that beat you then was a reserve team too, only 3 regular starters.

if we play in germany we'll beat you, "awe mode" or not

I actually hope we do end up in the same group. Hey Northern Ireland beat ya. So your not indestructable. If the football gods pulled another fast one and the yanks got the win, could you imagine how quick sven would be shown the door?


I dont really think the US will win in a match against the two but I do believe it would be a good game and one I would really like to see because I like both teams.

BTW I didnt mean to make this a talking smack thread but its fun none the less. Its the first time in a long time I've even gotten to discuss football with anyone.
So smack away smack away.

The US doesn't get cheered anywhere. I don't think playing in Germany is going to bother them much.
