The World Cup draw will finally be made on Friday, and it will lead to six months of over-analyzing and very wonderful trash-talking. The 32 qualified teams have been organized into pots, but they're not perfectly even due to the high number of European teams that qualified, but did not get seeded for the tournament.
|Pot 1||Pot 2||Pot 3||Pot 4|
One team from Pot 4 will end up being drawn alongside the Pot 2 teams and FIFA has procedures in place to ensure sufficient geographic separation between continents, though one group will have to pit two European teams against each other.
The draw gets underway at 11 a.m. ET, 1 p.m. local time from the resort town of Mata de São João in Bahia, Brazil. They certainly couldn't get everyone to show up without providing some incentives.

After the draw SB Nation and KICKTV will have a live reaction show, which you can see by clicking here. You can hang out in the comments of that post for discussion during and after the draw.
