I might wait 14 or so years. By then we'll have about 3 times as many good Hispanic players (a group that is crazy about soccer)...being bankrolled by US wealth. And the US will win a world cup before the process of it being a dying empire is too forgone.
We almost got the 2022 Cup here in the States, but we lost in the bidding process to...wait for it...Qatar. Yes, the same Qatar where the average daily high temperature in July and August is 106 degrees.
All the grief that Atlanta got for hosting the 1996 Summer Olympics in 85-95 degree heat will be nothing as soon as footballers start dropping like flies on the pitch. Only three subs per game means that 7 players per side (plus the keeper) will be running around for 90+ minutes in a sauna.
Yes, I'm still bitter. I went to the 94 Cup and the Women's 03 Cup, and was hoping for another one here soon...2022 was looking promising.
