Luck of the Draw

The World Cup Final Draw was today.


It was a morning of maniacal texting and giddy preparation and anticipation. So much anticipation.


FIFA does a big song and dance on the day of the final draw. Just when you start to think that they’re never going to get to the main event, the draw happens. So much drama.

Here are the results.


And here’s what you (should) really care about, the games we’re attending:

Match 24 – Italy v. Costa Rica
Match 34 – Croatia v. Mexico
Match 39 – Italy v. Uruguay
Match 45 – UNITED STATES OF AMERICA v. Germany

Yes, friends. You read that correctly. We’re seeing our countrymen play Germany.


And we’re sort of excited about it.
