England's Dreaming

The World Cup starts tomorrow and I cannot wait. England can breathe a sigh of relief that their young star Wayne Rooney has been cleared to play at some point in the Cup.

The United States team has the only team bus without a flag on its side. The security for the US team is so tight that the German police are rerouting traffic and closing streets when they travel.

The US plays the Czech Republic Monday at Noon. I'll probably be at Radio, Radio (I'll catch you next time, Jim) to watch the match since it is closest to work.

Mike pointed out that Michael Davies will be covering the Cup again for ESPN.com. I enjoyed reading his columns from the last Cup.

So. The World Cup. That's soccer, right?

Well, the day of reckoning is here. I've taken the day off. Come 11:00 a.m., it's off to Brugge to sip on a fine Belgian ale and to hope, pray, and plead for our boys to bring their A game, for the Czechs to underestimate our players, and for us to score the first goal and set the tone from there. Can the Yanks do it? No question. Will they? That remains to be seen. Perhaps, in my wildest dreams, we'll reverse the score from the 1990 World Cup meeting and have it end up USA 5, Czech Republic 1. ;)

Okay, that's delusional, but we're going to win, aren't we? We shall see...

I don't follow soccer much, but I love any sport that demands allegance to your country. So with that I chant:

U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!

Maybe I'll get drunk at lunch to show my solidarity...
