Skip to comments.United States can be victors if we lose the World Cup (Sportswriter Roots for America to Lose)

I love the World Cup. And I love America its my hometown! But I would not love to see America win the World Cup.
Frankly, we dont need another feather in our already overstuffed cap. And considering soccer is the worlds game and most of the world is at odds with America at any given moment I think it might be a nice idea for Uncle Sam, in an effort to promote world harmony, to lie down in South Africa.
Now, in all likelihood, the U.S. is not going to be in a position to win the World Cup. But on the off-chance that Landon Donovan and friends have thoughts of reprising that Miracle-on-Ice thing actually, Miracle-on-the-Pitch doesnt have the same ring to it I must implore my fellow Americans to tank.
The smart play, diplomatically, would be to lose with grace.
Americans are a pretty xenophobic lot when, in truth, were the ones who provoke an intense dislike. Most of the world does not threaten us; rather, most of the world is terrified by us. Were a little too big, a little too rich and a little too powerful and, every once in a while, we muscle up and flex our military might in foreign lands.
There is much fear and loathing of America elsewhere. We seldom imagine what it would be like if the Army boot were on the other foot.

It's called the Libtard Plan for Success ... you reduce yourself to a poor, impoverished, sniveling, dismal, weak shadow of your former self ... but it makes people like you
Why even play the game then, jackass?
Underprivileged countries get two votes.
No need to actually play any football.
That guy is living in some kind of fantasy world I am not familiar with.
Yesterday the whining was that Americans didn’t like soccer because we’re rrraaacccciiissstttt!
Today we should lose on purpose?
Liberalism is a mental disorder.
But....but....I thought if only we got rid of that Evil Cowboy George Bush, the world would love us again.
OMG what an idiot.
I think the turd mentioned every liberal talking point in the Hate America First playbook.
What an asshat! Why don’t you move to South Africa! Look at this guy, this guy is resenting being put in those lockers as a kid.
Laughable goofball, aspires to be French.
These are the type of people running our country right now.
Did he say "Obama really doesn't need a Nobel Prize to go with his Grammys, etc...?"
Did he say "Gore really doesn't need an Oscar to go with his Grammy, his Nobel Prize, etc...?"
I spit on those who spit on this country.
This man is a moron.
But, he’s good at it.
Because he is a moron, and has no sense of pride in his country, I expect he is an Obama voter.
Now that’s a feather in HIS understuffed hat.
So where’s the BARF alert?????
Tell ‘em Iffen they don’t like it—kiss our collective a$$e$!!
...going to see what the comments look like at the site.
Personally, I would love to see US win the World Cup. Honestly, how many hundred people in the country even GAS about soccer? Winnning it over soccer-mad Europeans and South Americans would be oh-so-sweet. Not to worry though: FIFA will never let it happen.
Am I the only one here with an overwhelming desire to b**chslap this idiot?
You play to win or you stay home.
Why don’t we just have Philosophy Football
Wow, this just made it much harder to watch the World Series of Poker.
