Added Trump and Rome, but not Cowell. He's a Brit.

The world cup for football is a bit like your "world series" for baseball, yanks. Except that other countries are allowed to participate.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Michael Savage. He could be seated next to Michael Moore and they could slapfight all the way there.

killahgrag: Sorry, not our responsibility.

Sure, just pass the buck along to the next generation. That's the problem, no one wants to take corrective action to make the world a better place. You don't want to get your hands dirty!

Jackpot777: gwowen: Now That's What I Call a Taco!: Ireland is very much NOT a part of the United Kingdom

Northern Ireland is. And they do, indeed, have their own football teams.

And Northern Ireland used to have the Best player.



Buy yeah, fail for ABC for saying the UK faced off against the US decades ago, and are going to again.



The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is the country, with member nations shown.

Great Britain refers to the largest of the British Isles.


England.


Scotland


Wales


Northern Ireland


Half of the Northern Ireland team looks like their heads have been photoshopped on. Especially the goalkeeper.

/will be supporting England and hoping that Australia can get through to knock them out in the 2nd round

As for the list, I'll toss in Tony LaRussa.

Last year of Milwaukee County Stadium, the Cardinals were visiting the Brewers. I, being a kid, go around asking everyone for their autograph, like kids do at baseball games. I get to LaRussa, 'Mr. LaRussa, can I have your autograph?'

"I don't sign for cheeseheads." And then he flips me off.

The sun with him.

Calabai_Yau: What's with the hate-on for Lady Gaga? I like her music, even if her style/wardrobe is a little out there.

Because she's released the same song a dozen times. I'm going to guarantee her next album could be called "Thirteen to Sixteen songs about relationships 99% of women will regret"

No PK shootout or extra time in the group stage. A tie is a tie and one point. But it does seem like the US is playing for a tie, not sure that strategy will work

Cajnik: I think Slovenia will cause more problems than Algeria. Especially if the US ties England, they'll need to get a W the next game.

I'm counting on Algeria to suck. Hopefully with two maybe 3 loses. I think we can take Slovenia. That should get us out of group play

Well, the original point to the list was for it to be a democratic decision... this is turned into more of a totalitarian affair.

I think so too, but the Algeria-Slovenia game will tell a lot. FWIW, Slovenia gave up very few goals in qualifying (only 4 in 10 games) - 2nd lowest in UEFA behind the Netherlands

killahgrag: 55. Michelle Bachmann

You've got Michelle Bachman in there 3 times, twice as herself and once as part of Congress. I realize the crazy might be catching under normal circumstances, but this flight is one way, so may I suggest that we remove her by name and add Dr. Phil and Ted Nugent to that list. (Ted has done all the contributing to American Culture he's gonna do, unless you really want to see where he goes from Damn Yankees.)

Ok.

I was planning on doing the beer world cup thing of buying one from each country and drinking as they were knocked out, but

1) I'm way too lazy
2) I'm way too broke
3) It's really hard to find beers for some of those countries (North Korea, Algeria etc.)
