U.S. doesn’t get World Cup, Obama says it was “wrong decision”
The 2018 World Cup will be played in Russia, provided that it is still called that. And that is also provided that other countries will be allowed to enter the country to play soccer. With that country, you just never know. Hell, by 2018, China could have moved in.
But, we still have 2022, right? Nope. Someone must have thought that we really need to throw Qatar a bone. Qatar? Really? Because playing soccer in the Persian Gulf in June sounds like fun? Christ. What are the players going to drink at halftime? Sand?
Of course, President Obama called the move to not give the U.S. a World Cup the “wrong decision.” He’s the president, what else is he going to say? This is the guy that thought bringing the Olympics to Chicago was a good idea. Cities lose money on that crap, but the entire country would have profited off of the World Cup. Maybe he thought we had a chance to get the 2011 World Cup so we could get the economy turned around. Did anyone tell him there is no 2011 World Cup? He’s a basketball fan, he wouldn’t know.
