Shockng turn of events on the Huddle - a thread that could have inspired patriotism and collective celebration has turned into a thread that now belongs in Smack Central.
Never would've saw that coming...

I would rather see the best teams advance and it doesn't matter what country they are from. USA soccer is nowhere as good as most of the teams in the World Cup but silly americans still expect us to advance and make noise in a tourney that most americans could careless about. YOu are right about being serious contenders in the future though....thanks to legal and illegal immigration..lol
FIFA world #14, I guess, is not nearly as good as the 13 other teams ranked ahead of them. Yes U.S.A. soccer sucks. FYI, there are just over 200 countries and territories in the FIFA rankings. Not to mention that soccer is not the national sport (as in most countries) and also was not really in the American psyche prior to the 1990 Cup qualification. All in all not too damn bad if you ask me.
For the redheaded stepchild of American sports, the National team does fairly well for itself despite all the haters and ignorant people.
