US-England (Self Indulgence Alert)
As the World Cup approaches I have been keeping my eyes on tickets for some of the more high-profile matches, as the organizers have been rationing tickets. Very few of the matches have sold out completely, largely because FIFA has kept some tickets in reserve. But more and more of those tickets are on sale each day, and today I was able to secure a ducat to the US-England game, which promises to be one of the crucial matches of the Cup. The tournament starts in a week, and I'll arrive in South Africa just a few hours before kickoff of the South Africa-Mexico game.
