A stadium collapsing onto the team? Hey, it is Brazil.

Can you feel it? Can you feel the world cup excitement growing here?

The immense pressure?

My know-nothing observations: Watch out for Chile and Belgium.  And France, they do well every other World Cup.

I think the Reign of Spain is over, too.

Apparently the 1950 upset was so big, Brazil changed kit colors since they thought it was cursed. Brazil used to play in all-white.

Well, they're not in the group the USA is in, so they can at least get out of group play.

/should probably look up who's in England's group

Heh, yeah, England's WC could very well be effectively over after 180 minutes.

/but their press will be tearing em a new one after only 90

Italy
Uruguay
England
Costa Rica

Portugal
Germany
Ghana
USA

Both the teams I support are in Groups of Death. US's is slightly more Deathly though.

Does the mathematical formula require the Hand of God to write out the equations?

Maradona + bribed ref = lulz

There are a few WAGS I'd like to equate with, if you get my meaning etc.

LucklessWonder: Group of Death


Not an attack on you, but in general, I hate this term. The group stage will likely be very challenging, but there's no reason the US can't win the group outright or qualify for the round of 16. Certainly, the bookmakers and I agree the odds are against, but the challenges they face in the group stage will place them on solid footing should they advance. I wish people would try to be more positive about it.

We'll play Ghana hard for payback, we stand a halfway decent shot at draws with Germany and Portugal, not to mention those teams all play each other too. All they have to do is slip a little and the second spot is ours.

1) Hope Germany doesn't get out of its group.

I thought I could, but it was just the bean burrito I had for dinner.

Yep, those are both tough draws.  Thanks.

England are the New York Jets of soccer.

Every time, they cobble together a bunch of old, once-great shiatbags.  The tabloids blow up about how they're going to go all the way this time.  They lose or tie games they shouldn't.  The fans and press turn on them, and they wind up mediocre.

Group of Death doesn't mean death for the US, just for at least one team that would most likely advance out of another more reasonable group. The US currently being considered third in group has nothing to do with the Group of Death moniker.

Ah. I always hear it from USA fans (given that I live here) so I assumed it was a pessimistic failure mode engage. But your definition makes sense. The name doesn't seem to really fit, IMO. I would call it "unbalanced group" or something like that.

Sums it up perfectly.

And for hockey fans, the Toronto Maple Leafs fit the description as well.
