Canada, that was easy to get up for, but Switzerland ... meh. Looks like I have some research to do, and I'll have more time since I took off work to watch this game. I'm ready, are you?

Looking for America videos, I came across Miley Cyrus's "Party in the USA." Needless to say, I couldn't live with myself for linking Miley Cyrus. Then I remembered my favorite mashup and well, Party and Bullshit, son.

Hey guess who Team America is playing today?

Game on at 2 p.m. today. I'll be there, will you? Rock, flag and eagle everyone.
