Mundial de los Descamisados
The Homeless World Cup is in full swing in Copenhagen—a fantastic, inspiring event that aims to use football as a rallying point to get people into jobs, houses and education. The United States seems to have come second in their first-round group, bowing to an apparent powerhouse in undefeated Kazakhstan (the former Soviet Union, sadly/impressively, seems to produce many of the slicker homeless sides). A decent goal difference would seem to book USA's place in the next round—good thing, too, since fans would be obligated to riot at the airport on the team's return if they had disgraced us.
