In a Mexican restaurant the other night I saw the U.S. soccer team fall to Trinidad y Tobago and thus get eliminated from next year’s World Cup competition. (It said it on the screen: “EE UU eliminado.”)
Except that this isn’t quite true. The U.S. will be in contention for the world cup and given the team’s history has a shot at winning. But it might be a team you forgot about. Stephen Colbert clears matters up below (after talking a bit about American football), and while he makes jokes, or course, what he says is quite true.
