Look Sharp, Dallas. Because Next Week, the World Cup Site Selection Committee's Coming.
The city -- OK, the region -- is hoping to sell FIFA on the Cotton Bowl and Cowboys Stadium, not to mention the Dallas Convention Center, site of the Thursday-morning visit, which is part of a long-scheduled "technical tour" of several U.S. cities set to kick off Monday in New York City. After FIFA officials leave Dallas they head straight to Houston -- where, says here, city officials "feel that the success of the MLS All-Star Game in July proved both to U.S. Soccer and the FIFA Delegation that Houston is a city ready for world-class soccer match-ups and would be an excellent host city for a future World Cup."
FIFA won't make a decision till December 2. So clean yourself up next week. Shave. Yes, you. Shower. Maybe put on one of these tees. Couldn't hurt. C'mon -- don't you remember how amazing it was in '94? Best. Summer. Ever.
