A lot of disgruntled, wet folks left Daytona International Speedway last weekend during the Coke Zero 400, aka The Weather Channel Classic.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Axl Rose is screaming "Welcome to the Jungle" on Sirius Satellite Radio as Kyle Bazzell steps into the hauler in the cozy comfort of flip-flops, exposing his black painted toenails.

Oh well. They still made it out of the group of death, which is a huge accomplishment. However, I think the loss may have disenchanted a lot of casual futbol fans who don't understand how group play works. I imagine if they lost the first one, tied, and then won, the country would still be having World Cup fever.
