World Cup 2018 or 2022

Big time mixed emotions on this one.
27 U.S. cities are still in the running to host matches. Houston is close; Dallas is close, Nashville is close, Atlanta is close.

New Orleans is CLOSER, AND a world-class venue for all manner of sporting championships. And it's already been rejected. This PISSES ME THE FUCK OFF.
The Superdome is within a MILE of over 25,000 hotel rooms, and at least 50 WORLD CLASS restaurants.

US Soccer is so clueless on SO MANY levels.
