The World Cup

Apparently there is a soccer tournament going on.  I heard about it from Bill Burr's podcast this week, where he gave two reasons why he'd like to see the United States win:
1) Because the rest of the world hates us, and
2) Because no more than 40 will show up to the victory parade.
Mr. Burr makes the first convincing argument to root for the US soccer team I've heard.

Comrade and hat owner, Tam, also posted on the subject:
It involves a lot of running around, produces little (in the way of score), there's pleading with capricious officials, and it's desperate to be accepted by America.  Soccer, it's like a metaphor for the rest of the world!


UPDATED 6.24.14 7am:

Did Al Gore realize this is the stuff I'd find on his Internet?



I haven't laughed that hard in a while.
