World Cup Closer, US v Holland Today, and No Beer For Scotland

World Cup Even Closer Now!Yesterday was the 100 day mark until the start of the World Cup (see the countdown clock on the right side of the blog), and according to NASA scientists, the magnitude 8.8 Chilean earthquake has shortened the length of the day! Of course, our thoughts go out to those affected by the earthquake. But now there's even less time until the kick off in South Africa! Sweet!

More US v Holland

The US takes on #3 ranked Holland this afternoon. Time to develop the 4-hour flu and join us at Steve McQueen's. I spoke to my buddy Peter Van Voorthuizen, who is a Dutch soccer guy, and he's predicting a 3:1 win for the Oranje. Here's to hoping he's wrong, but he's not the only one predicting a victory for the Dutch team that did not drop a single point during World Cup qualifying.

BTW, here are a few more photos of the USMNT kits that will debut today.

I'm Sorry, Scotland. No Beer For You.

I feel bad for the lads from the land of kilts. Despite the fact that the Scottish FA is sponsored by Tennet's Lager, the boys on the National team will be denied tossing back a few cold ones after new Scotland manager, Craig Levein, has banned player drinking while on international duty.
