.....Or......four years from now? Is that how long it is until the next World Cup? Hey FIFA, I've got an idea, you want more people on this continent amped about your sport? Make the World Cup every year, or two at the very least. This is reason #34324 why soccer doesn't catch on in America. Because by the time we get invested and finally learn the rules, we have to wait four years to get another taste. Like right now I actually know what 'offsides' is and what 'stoppage time' is, but four years from now? Who knows if I'll even be alive, let alone remember the rules of soccer. I guess I could watch the MLS, but if I add that to the list of MLB, NFL, NBA, and college football and basketball, where do I draw the line? Like am I going to watch the WNBA? Rock/Paper/Scissors? Yeah I can't get invested in another league, I'm just not in the right place. It's not you soccer, it's me.
I do wonder though how in the world the U.S. lost to Ghana. Friekin GHANA. I had to google 'African map' just to find out where the hell Ghana is! Not to mention we had this combo rooting for the good ol' U.S.A.:
Seriously how can Ghana, let alone any person compete with these two in our corner. I mean how great would it be to be this dude in orange behind Mick and Slick here. Just think about the conversation that led to these laughing faces. I posed this question on my bookface on Saturday; who's got the better "you think THAT'S a story? I'll give you a story, this one time......" stories here? Got to be Clinton right? Like only Clinton can not only combine hook ups with world diplomacy but also redefine an entire word. Like he said the words "I guess that depends on what your definition of is is," and it sort of worked.
AHHHHHHHHHH! Did I just get hexed through my TV? Is that Papa Shango*? Nevermind the World Cup, I'm just happy we all made it out alive. Not to mention we may have lost the match, but who has color TV and Slim Jims? That's what I thought. USA! USA! Bonus word: voodoo.
