First, a quick note. North Korea has qualified for the World Cup. I don’t think they can be drawn in a group with South Korea, but they already have been in a qualifying group, so there wouldn’t be too much intrigue in that. Anyway, good for their players, whom we need not involve in our various political quarrels.
This morning, the USA plays Brazil in a mouthwatering Confederations Cup tie, at least to us Yanks. Team news in the next post. The Americans are out of the tournament after the group stage if they lose this one.
Also, the US Open is underway, despite the rain here in NY. We’ll see if they can get play in all day, even though the word earlier this week was that the course couldn’t take more than maybe another half-inch of rain on top of everything else that’s fallen. Tiger’s out on the course already, but +2 through five holes. Phil Mickelson plays later, again weather permitting.
