FlashHarry: hmmm... we're in group G with germany.
Peter von Nostrand: No. Next question.
strangeguitar: Short answer: NoLong Answer: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
syrynxx: What would we do with another cup? What we really need are more salad bowls that match the plates.
Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: No, the important question is "how many people will die from collapsing stadiums?"/A: Brazillians
OtherLittleGuy: Um, yeah, Subby, I'll put that US World Cup Championship trophy up with the Cleveland Browns Super Bowl Trophy and the Chicago Cubs World Series ring.
haemaker: FlashHarry: hmmm... we're in group G with germany.It would be a major victory to win one game.We are underdogs against Germany and Portugal; about even with Ghana.Odds for US to win Group G are 12-1, and the World Cup is 150-1.
Benevolent Misanthrope: Those 150-1 odds are generous.
rickythepenguin: stir22: Do you believe in miracles?the only good thing about the USA losing to Canada in the hockey gold match a few years back was mankind being spared Al Michael's in no way contrived or pre-scripted "DO YOU *STILL* BELIEVE IN MIRACLES? YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!" call that you know he had locked and motherfarking loaded for a US win.to the question, getting 4 points in the group would be a minor miracle.
dittybopper: syrynxx: What would we do with another cup? What we really need are more salad bowls that match the plates.Namibia needs fondue sets, maybe we could put a sterno under it and give it to them.
dletter: I mean, if we equated it to the NCAA Basketball Tournament, are we putting a U.S. win at the level of like when Butler almost won it, or is it more like if Gulf Coast actually advanced past the Sweet 16 a few years ago and won the whole thing?
The Muthaship: Benevolent Misanthrope: Those 150-1 odds are generous.I wouldn't put a nickel on them at 1500-1
HaywoodJablonski: We can take 3 off of Ghana and 1 off of Portugal without too much mental gymnastics.Keep in mind we have home hemisphere advantage and possible climate advantages.
Mr. Coffee Nerves: If a bunch of hastily-constructed stadiums collapse during Spain-Netherlands and England-Italy, and a few riots unquelled by striking police result in the kidnapping of the German and Brazilian teams, sure.
Rising_Zan_Samurai_Gunman: Shouldn't the question really be, how many players and people in the stands will be killed due to shoddy and rushed construction in Rio to try to get the venues done in the next 30 days?
HaywoodJablonski: We can take 3 off of Ghana and 1 off of Portugal without too much mental gymnastics.
Cybernetic: Mr. Coffee Nerves: If a bunch of hastily-constructed stadiums collapse during Spain-Netherlands and England-Italy, and a few riots unquelled by striking police result in the kidnapping of the German and Brazilian teams, sure.Oddly enough, all of those seem at least slightly possible.
