Mad Cal's World Cup Teams To Watch and Cheer For (also known as MCWCTTWACF)
1. Cote d'Ivoire Any time a sports team can unite a country and can put a stop to a civil war, you gotta root for them. They've got a tough group, but they have a striker named Drogba who is a real player.
2. USA Ranked number 5 in the FIFA's version of the BCS isn't going to mean anything because the Americans also got one of the toughest draws in the group round. Maybe NFL Europe will become such a big sensation that they will let us play our version of football during the Cup. Either way, I must support the home team.
3. Brazil They could start Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Robino and Ronald McDonald along with 7 samba dancers and still win most games by 3 scores. Ronaldinho (his full name is Ronaldo de Assis Moreira) is a 2 time FIFA player of the year and has some of the sickest dribbling and ball handling moves ever seen.
