I don't mean to sound unpatriotic, but I hope England wins. Probably 1% of the U.S. population watches it or cares about it. It seems like it is a big deal to the English. I think if the U.S. wins there would be a deafening silence here. Soccer is so boring, if the U.S. exits early, maybe they won't report on the WC here at all.
"Be of good comfort, Master Ridley, and play the man! We shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out."
--Hugh Latimer, October 16, 1555
