World Cup organizers freakin' suck.

And let me be clear: I am certainly not talking about the good people of Brazil doing this next-to-impossibly hard work in any way. I am talking about freakin' FIFA and the freakin' domestic organizers who insanely opted to stick some games in the middle of the freakin' rainforest for no purposeful reason (other than to make somebody a shit-ton of ill-gotten money). John Oliver mentioned this stadium that may as well be on the moon the other day, and now guess what else?

Cool. They took the field from my high school in Jersey that we shared with the football team and moved it to Brazil.

This doesn't surprise me at all.

Does a poor field (outside of increased chances for injury) help or hurt the US v. Portugal? I think it probably helps the US given that we are more used to playing competitive matches on poor surfaces in CONCACAF than Portugal does in UEFA. The England/Italy match will give us some indication of condition.

Well if RG3's performance gives any clues, a fragile knee on a crappy field is a great equalizer. Sorry Ronaldo...and keep Omar on the bench for this game.
