Root for the Yanks!

Not the Yankees specifically this time but for the Americans in the World Cup. As Monk notes below the US got a lousy (i.e., very tough draw) with Italy, the Czech Republic and Ghana.

If the Americans won, the world would be sooooooo p*ssed/hacked off.

On one of my favorite betting sites, the Americans are quoted as having about a 2% chance of winning (bet 2 dollars to win 100). Brazil, the favorite, is quoted at about 25%. I am buying some contracts on the Americans -- a cheap bet hoping they advance to the elimination round and I can sell the contracts for a profit.
