So, Russia and Qatar are to host World Cups 2018 and 2022, respectively. Although I'm russian, I'm not exactly over the moon right now. I don't care if there were any machinations behind the scenes, but I still feel bad for the USA and England. I'd vote for them without a second thought. If only I could. Ugh. I can't be sure about corruption in FIFA, but there's definitely something wrong with it. The only bright side in this all is that the Spanish bid was unsuccessful. That would have been awful if they didn't lose.
