There are concerns around the upcoming World Cup. Strikes and protests over the large amount of money spent on the porting event while many Brazilians live in third-world conditions. Stadiums that aren't necessarily ready. An American team that doesn't feature Landon Donovan. On the other hand: sloth!

Hey buddy! You are the World Cup sloth. We're going to call you Norbert! Norbert the World Cup sloth! What was that stuff I said about protests? I forget!
Manaus, of course, is where the United States plays Portugal on June 22, the biggest city in the Amazon. It will be hot. Hopefully America's back line will be more fleet of foot than Norbert when dealing with Cristiano Ronaldo and crew.
