So today’s draw has come in and FIFA has done right by the United States with an easy group. Not so much with Ireland, who can whine all they want but there is no instant replay for Thierry Henry’s handball.
My teams are the United States and beloved Greece. The US should be able to advance out of Group C, perhaps even setting down an epic smackdown on the Brits. Greece will be more hard pressed, but I have confidence that they can bring a steady stream of culture to the game. So long as neither Nigeria nor South Korea manages a steady attack, our defensive styling could carry us through the group.
