An Inflated Sense of Worth

I don't want to rip on the US Men's National Team too much - I am a huge fan. But I would imagine that even the players on the team are cringing at the marketing job that has been done to promote the US vs Brazil game this Sunday (I really wish I was going to this one).

Check out the billing: "Clash of Champions"

Make no mistake. Brazil is ranked the number 1 team in the world. We are not in the top 10 and are on a 3 game losing streak. Don't get me wrong. I'll be painting my face in red, white and blue and believe that there is a chance that we will pull out a victory - that's why the game is played. But still...the billing for the event is a little pretentious.

with all the dribbling and quick passing going on inside the US box, I would be some money on Gooch getting a penalty called against him.

I wouldn't take that bet. Hopefully it is only one PK.

Do those represent WC wins? How many World Cups has Brazil won?
