Do you care about the World Cup now that the United States has been eliminated?
It only gets better from here: overtime, penalty kicks, single elimination. The national pride, pageantry and sportsmanship of the World Cup is a must-watch for a sports fan.
Even if the United States had moved on, having the Orioles sweep the Nationals this weekend would excite me more. I do hope some small country wins it all.
Sad as we may be that the United States has been eliminated, the World Cup is the greatest sporting event in the world. More people will watch it with more passion than will watch the NFL playoffs, World Series, NBA Finals and Stanley Cup Finals combined.
Should the Orioles have replaced Adam Loewen in the rotation with Russ Ortiz?
