If you are downtown tomorrow morning at 6:30am, I suggest you swing by FX McCrory’s. There, Mick will be serving breakfast and hosting a live viewing of the selection of the host countries of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups. RSVP here.
This should be exciting and slightly nerve-wracking for everyone hoping the U.S. is chosen for 2022. It’s been a pretty dirty selection process thus far, so even though common sense says that the United States would be a better host than Qatar, well, money talks and Fifa’s selection committee members are human beings who like money and the items money buys.
If you want to watch the US Presentation, lead by President Bill Clinton, you can watch it here. (Sounders fans, skip ahead to 16:45 or so if you want to see how Seattle is presented as a sign of soccer’s growth in the US.)
