Win or go home, it’s as simple as that. We’ve been talking about it for years this day of days when the Joint Bid will learn its fate. It is said that democracy is two lions and a sheep deciding what to eat for dinner, well we are about to find out who is the lion and who is the sheep. Either the US, Mexico, and Canada will host the 2026 World Cup and get all the glory and treasure that comes along with it, or Morocco does. Or, if it’s a tie the tiebreaker will be that neither bid can host or be eligible to host in 2026 again.
But first there’s going to be the 68th FIFA Congress. I imagine this is a deliberative body that operates by closing the doors and having all of the members of the organization untie their masks, safe and comfortable in their hideout, as they unwrap all of the loot they’ve pilfered over the last year. After they divvy up their treasure and laugh about the truth of how they set up those patsies for stealing the Jules Rimet Trophy as a they plot how they will use the Denver Airport to usher in the New World Order, plan the dispersion of chemtrails for the next year, and get the latest report from Q Anon about the progress of the counter coup against the deep state, they’ll vote.
So, because there is the business of running a giant, powerful, less corrupt - but probably still really, really corrupt - organization we know when the coverage and FIFA Congress will start, but not when the vote will be.
