No pressure Kasey, honest.
The World Cup seen from Chicago
The World Cup is getting more media coverage than I imagined and although Chicagoan's seem a bit confused by the fuss and the size of it all, it is competing pretty well in sport orientated conversations in competition with the Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks NBA final
and ice hockey's Stanley Cup between Carolina Hurricanes and Edmonton Oilers
Work is still a 'mare frankly but I have pencilled in numerous external breakfast, lunch and afternoon meetings over the next few weeks. In fact will be in London for the last week of the month, returning to the US for the semi's.
Tomorrow I have a meeting with Uncle Sam
and the Czech Republic in the American's fir
st group stage game. I will join a few friends for an early beer and sandwich tomorrow to cheer them on. It's important for the continued interest in the competition here and future growth of the game Stateside that the Americans make a mark on the competition and advance to the 2nd Round, although they are in an exceptionally tough group. But, don't worry it's alright Alexi Lalas (remember him?) has just said that "Kasey Keller is the best goalkeeper in the world,"
so they have nothing to worry about!
