The World Cup is like an American Election.

Here's an interesting post (in French and English) on this blog which compares the Soccer World Cup to a U.S. presidential election:
  • both events take place every four years
  • the elemination phase in the Soccer cup is like the primaries
  • the whole world follow both events and you can't avoid it, no matter where you are.
  • and the first game can be compared to a good showing in Iowa and New Hampshire.
  • a red card is like the impact of Howard Dean's self-elimination.
Funny, hey?

Ironically, the whole world is watching except for the US.
