As good fortune would have it, now there is traction. 32 teams are booking flights for South Africa, pundits and prognosticators are salivating at the potential match-ups, and Theirry Henry is looking for a rock to crawl under.
While we have a long time before this actually gets going, we will have plenty of things to keep us occupied until then. The draw comes on Friday and we will endeavor to present a detailed reaction to the draw on this blog. The brothers MacKenzie will lead the way with detailed reactions.
BUT! In the spirit of expanding Montana's population rolls we are inducting a wide range of new Montanan's into our Hooligan blatherfest, invitations have gone out to individuals spread far and wide: Africans, Asians, South Americans even (shudder) Europeans now have the name of this blog and because they know one Montanan they can hereby apply for blogger citizenship and proclaim to the world their opinions. (Don't worry, if things get too saucy, the English teacher is here to edit and critique)
We'll have a blog a week on the teams coming down to the cape building up to the kick off, the analysis and the complete and utter pandemonium of World Cup Soccer, so join us again on Friday at one Eastern time in the US, for a recap of the draw and a host of analyses from us:
