|CAW CAW! Where is The Trashman?|
But it still comes down to winning and losing. In America, that is all that matters. If you are never playing in the big games then we just don’t care. That is a FACT. Everybody wants to be Tom Brady. Nobody wants to be T-Bone Romo. That sort of logic transcends (Colin!) everything. Here in the US of A, we strive to be the best. We like to think that we are the best goddamn country in the world so when our soccer coach is going public about how the American team has no chance, well, that isn’t going to be popular amongst the masses. This German sack of dicks can rip Kobe Bryant (correctly) all he wants to but writing off your team before one game is played is an odd course of action.
Look, you guys know how I feel about this. I won’t watch. I don’t support the sport. I am rooting against my own country because I want to see soccer die within our borders. Play a real sport please. This isn’t American.
So today is about drawing the line in the blogging sand and choosing your side so we know where everyone stands.
Are you going to watch The World Cup? Are you all-in on Team USA? Will you actually watch games featuring other countries? Can you name any players on the team now that Landon Donovan isn’t around? Is it enough to just make it out of pool play? Do “we” have any chance at all to win the whole shoot-and-match (Jim Redd term!)? Basically, do you care about The World Cup?
Who’s joining me on the anti-America wall? You want me on that wall. YOU NEED ME ON THAT WALL. I hope that we get embarrassed. But I will admit that I am mildly intrigued by Ghana having a witch doctor throwing curses at their opponents. THAT is an ELITE move right there. If you want me to concern myself with something that I hate, adding in some witchcraft is a nice start. Be happy that this is the only World Cup post that you will read here and it is just a means to identify who sucks and who rules. GO REST OF THE WORLD!
