Why I might have to root for England in the World Cup

Even though Team USA opens up against the limey horde, I may just have to root against the locals on this one.




Rick Mayall is my hero

I may have to get you an England flag to show your support!

I love English Premier League. I love English football.

But c'mon. I'm going to have to go rightwing nut here and call your actions un-American sir.

Please put your Donovan jersey back in place and root for the second coming of the American Revolution!!

I'm sorry sir, I have to ask to see your papers.

Good to see Drop Dead Fred (and Rick from The Young Ones) still alive and rousing some rabble. Never thought that he'd be the one to turn out some Henry Five and embody the spirit of St. George's Cross.

It cracks me up that every four years, the United Kingdom is just a little more dis-united in having to root for England, specifically.

Wales (one qualification in 1958), Northern Ireland (3 appearances, last one in 1986), and Scotland (eight tournaments, last one in 1998) rarely make the World Cup Finals, so good for Rik in trying to round up some Great British fervor for the English side.

Don't admit that you would root for "them" if you stand in Sam's Army - they might rend you limb from limb.

If you look closely at the USA's jerseys for the World Cup - it has "Don't Tread on ME" sewn under the crest inside the shirt.

In addition, the NIKE design has a sash across the front is a reminder what happened the only time the two countries met in the World Cup:

USA 1 England 0

We are the Rebels - they are the empire ... now, who do you love ?

I AM YOUR FATHER CHUCK, JOIN ME AND BEHOLD THE POWER OF THE DARK SIDE. IT IS YOUR DENSITY.

I still haven't decided but I might root for the Limeys just to be ornery. Or for ITALIA! VIVA ITALIA!!!

If Patton Oswalt does a song I'll be back in the USA camp though.
