Now this should have probably been placed in the Sports bit, but I thought it might reach a wider audience here. I am on a Yank Motorbike site (Speed TV) And there has been a slight discourse on the World Cup. I thought I would share with you the reason why the USA got gubbed and England won. If anyone works it out, I'd appreciate a debrief.. "the US got screwed, no doubt about it. to make it past the 16 we've got to beat either #1 or #2. won't happen. netherlands #3 and brasil #1 will be in the final. my money, as always, is on brasil. for being ranked #10, england was given a cake walk bracket w/ #16,33 and 47. and moving on to play the winners of 19,26,29 and 39. The US at #5 should have been in that bracket. you be proud while you can, bell. while you'll probably make it further than us, you won't make the final 4. you could say the US hasn't earned a soft bracket like england b/c we haven't been involved as long. maybe so. you can't argue, however, that y'all got gifted the first 2 brackets or that the US is the better team this year yes, it amazes me too "
