Is this coming from a septic whose country invented their own sport and then caked their local tournament the world series just so they could pretend to be good at it?



We didn't invent baseball, try again sweetie!!

You invented baseball just as much as the English invented football didn't you?

Baseball was just a game in England and only had popularity as a sport in North America.

Saying that you didn't invent it because English people played it is tantamount to saying the British didn't invent football because similar games were played in China 3000 years ago

TIL the US is shit at baseball.
Who knows? You might be. Nobody else gives enough of a shit to try and beat you.

It's like saying Canadians are good at Curling. No, sweetie, it's just that nobody else wastes their time sweeping ice

No I believe it was the Canadians actually. Or more so, nobody really even knows for sure.

So how does this work with automatic entry then? Do all 3 countries get in? Certainly that can't be the case.

I don't know

With Japan / South Korea they both did iirc

Mexico will probably qualify in their own right anyway. Maybe they're banking on that

I'd rather we have to qualify the normal way to be honest.

I do really think we will be a good team one day. Our U-17's made it to the quarterfinals. Football/soccer is getting bigger everyday here now. Instead of going to college, our youth players are joining European youth teams to get better development. I wouldn't be surprised if win it before I die. I know most will laugh at that, but I'm serious. We have so many athletes here, once we get a good generation or two with good development like the rest of the world, I think we'll be good. And then the world will hate us even more. Especially you lot! :lol:

I think all 3 will qualify automatically as it's an expanded 48-team tournament now. There'll be 6 spots for CONCACAF teams so 3 will be the hosts and 3 others will need to qualify.

Pleased with this.

The World Cup is about putting on a show, and most of all running the tv broadcasting properly. The Americans are first class at both.

Explain this then: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Baseball_Classic :dontknow:

Baseball may not be globally ubiquitous like football and basketball, but to dismiss the sport altogether by saying no other country gives enough of a shit is completely ignorant.

Toodles.

Yo stfu please don't tempt fate like that :grin:

Although, we won't have Bruce Arena then...

As long as we can find some competitive fixtures, then we should be fine. Maybe get a series going on with Mexico (rotating between stadiums here and the Azteca) while other nations are going through qualifiers, then continue to increase the level of competition with the Germanys and Brazils of the world to fine tune things a few months before the World Cup.

US soccer needs a major overhaul before 2026. Youth teams need better technical coaching rather than depending on physical and atheletic prowess. That saves you at the junior level but not at the pro level. Redo the mls and lift the stupid salary cap. Let real competition enter the league and players fight for higher wages and places. The entire aparatus has stagnated for years under Gulati.
