Every four years, productivity at $WORK slows, and it isn't for the Olympics. People take really long lunches and make it up in the evenings and wear their national teams' uniforms.

They announced the draw for what the rest of the planet really cares about today. My $SECONDARYBOSS (for when I bounce X-rays off of shiny things) is happy, but I'm moaning in pain because yet again, my teams are in a group of death. My work comrade in Sharks and Earthquakes fandom sent me the info.

In 2010, Portugal was in a group with Brazil and Cote d'Ivoire, and now both the Portuguese and American teams are in the *same* group with Germany and Ghana (so you can guess where $SECONDARYBOSS is from).

Needless to say, as a member of the Lusitanian diaspora in the USA, I am sooooo screwed. I have to watch Wondo and the USA probably crash and burn yet again in the group phase, and my best chance is with Ronaldo and the gang in green and red.

[personal profile] whump tells me it can't be worse than the Sharks in the Pacific Division. Le sigh.
