I hate to say it, but with the U.S. pooping the bed and missing out, I'm not sure if I care that much. Maybe root for Brazil since my neighbor is Brazilian? :shrug:

Man we have some really weak groups.

I'm not sure anything qualifies as the Group of Death -- I suppose the hardest ones would be D, E and F.

This is weird. It's shitty, but I'm still kind of numb to the USA not being in it.

I've always liked Spain and Mexico (as countries and teams). I'd also love to see Australia surprise in Group C... but I don't see it actually happening.

If Australia gets a single point in group B, it will be beyond a surprise!

Group E seems like the de facto group of deth, but yeah this year will have some new faces in the knockouts.
