I know its not the NFL but how many of you have dreamed of cheering on Team USA in an international football competition. Well my friends that day has come.
Not sure how many of you are aware but the International Federation of American Football's World Cup is going on right now in Austria. Team USA is in Group A with Mexico, Germany and Australia. Our first game was a blowout of Australia 61-0 and we play Germany today. and Mexico on Tuesday.
I have not found good streams yet but you can watch highlights of the games on youtube and hopefully with enough interest in the future these games will be on ESPN. I don't know about you but I don't understand why this cannot be shown over the bowling or pool that always seem to plague ESPN and ESPN2 this time of year.
Update (7/10): US beat Germany 48-7 meaning a win over Mexico will put us in the Finals against likely either Japan or Canada.
Update (7/12): The US beat Mexico 17-7 to finish 3-0 in Group play sending them to the Gold Medal game against the winner of tomorrow's Canada-Japan game.
