Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the World Cup Finals, but I truly think the qualifying process is far more dramatic and exciting to watch - except for the Australia/Somoa 32-0 games, but if you like goals... Seriously, I am looking forward our own CONCACAF qualifiers. The new format should be interesting. I know a U.S./St. Lucia/Guyana group has the potential to be a bore, but waiting to find out who makes the final 12 will be fun. The semi's are always enjoyable - remember the Costa Rica/Guatemala semi-final playoff? Then, the final round is always a blast. I know this is CONCACAF oriented, but I enjoy the other Confederations too. Qualifying is when the World Cup TRULY begins - every nation on earth is involved. I love the World Cup Finals, but qualifying is just a notch above.
