It's time for more soccer prognostication, and it's time to look at Group C, which includes our boys in red, white, and blue, the other boys in red, white, and blue (England), Algeria and Slovenia.
If you can find Algeria and Slovenia on a world map in less than five minutes, then you might be asked to teach geography in an American high school in the near future. If you can name one player from either of these countries, then you need to move out of your parents' basement.
This group is all about USA v. England on Saturday, June 12. People are worried about the US's ability to score goals, but this game will depend on our defense. We've got to pack it in, shut down Rooney, Crouch, and/or Defoe, and then spring Donovan, Dempsey, and maybe Findlay on the counter, hoping for a break down in the English defense. I say take it right at John Terry the Adulterer. Depending on the officiating, he's vulnerable to giving up penalties.
Now that I have just read the previous paragraph, I realize that I need to get out of the basement, too.
