Ireland? Psh. They just conserve their energy between World Cup appearances. That's why they always make it out of groups when they qualify!

I will still watch the World Cup. Heck I watch the Euro Cup sometimes when it's on too, but it definitely won't be the same without the US in it.

But I think the whole system needs to be blown up, but that won't happen because the USSF is a corrupt, clueless organization. They've passed superficial changes over the past couple of years that have mostly served to screw up the youth system (and affected teams my oldest son played on), that I'm not really inclined to care about the National team anyway. But overall the youth system is such a racket for the clubs involved with no real incentive to actually develop good players (or repercussions for not doing so). And until that changes we'll probably see mediocre at best, lousy at worst results. I hear we are doing pretty well with the U17 and U20 teams, which maybe points to a brighter future. I'll believe it when it happens.

AH FUCK! Italy eliminated as well... unfuckingbelievable.


this world cup is even less interesting to me now. I don't even know who to cheer for... maybe Iceland, in their first World Cup, and because they're a great progressive country.. Or Poland (my other ethnicity). or our fellow North American brethren the Mexicans.

Italy hadn't missed a World Cup since 1958... damn.
