Time to Start Getting Excited for the World Cup

I really don't have too much to say on the matter, but at least this video was a lot more relevant than the one I posted about a congressmen from Alabama. Simply put, I just wanted to show everyone why I'm so excited for the World Cup this summer, and why you should at least give it a shot if you're still on the fence about soccer. We as a country may passively root for our Yanks, but in every other country, every pass, every shot, every decision could be the difference between a life of heartache and a life of glory. That's what this Nike "commercial" so brilliantly represents, and I just wanted to share that with you all.

As for the World Cup itself, the Americans are actually in action on Tuesday as they have a friendly against the Czech Republic. As far as Wisconsin sports blogs go, I'm pretty sure we'll be the only ones covering the World Cup as I'm pretty sure we're the only ones who even tolerate soccer. I'm possibly thinking about bringing the live blog back for the Americans game against England on June 12th, but those live blogs usually end up being train wrecks so I'm not sure yet. Either way, make sure you stop by ESPN on Tuesday night (7pm) and check out the Americans in their first true World Cup tune-up.
