The Game Is In US

The United States World Cup Bid Committee just launched it's new website to gather support in bringing the 2018 or 2022 World Cups to the land of the red, white, and blue. Visit GoUSABid.com to sign the petition and voice your support.

While you're at it check out their trailer too. A bit cheesy, but a start:

As unabashed supporters of American soccer it is absolutely imperative that the United States land the World Cup again. In 1994 we should the world that we were not disinterested fans of the game by breaking and (and to this day) maintaining single game and total tournament records for attendance.

Since that summer of soccer love, Americans have been supporting the sport and home (with a growing domestic league) and abroad (growing TV ratings for international soccer leagues). We deserve another chance to prove that we have embraced the world's sport in total.

Besides this might be the only chance that you have to buy your friend a beer at a World Cup game. And it's only one!
