ESPN on the U.S. and the World Cup Draw
Ahead of Friday's 2010 FIFA World Cup Draw, ESPN wonders what the event could hold for the U.S. If you asked me (and you didn't but I'm going to go there regardless) the simple one-word answer is "pain". I'm as RahRahGoUSA as they come but after the last 3 games I'm just not feeling to pumped up about our chances.
Maybe we'll go and beat Poland in January (seems they're always good for a result for us) and I'll feel better but right now the draw seems like a pick-your-poison death sentence for me. It's like the moment your teacher handed you your report card when you knew all along you where going to get an "F"; it's a confrimation that you have a whippin' ahead of you when mom gets home from work.
