Alex Pacheco's Inner Most Thoughts

Qatar. A small country in the Middle East that is just slightly smaller than the state of Connecticut. Average temperatures in Qatar throughout the summer range from a low of 90 to a high of 125 degrees. The soccer team in Qatar has never been to the World Cup, not even close, they are the 122nd ranked team in the world. It is an utter disgrace that Qatar won the rights to host the 2022 World Cup. The USA got screwed. It stinks because I really want to see the World Cup in person some day. It’s on my bucket list. I guess I will have to save up and go to Brazil in 2014. I was furious after hearing the results and looked up all the negatives on Qatar and it just makes no sense to have the World Cup there. Other than the fact that it has never been played in the Middle East, Qatar is a bad move.

Is the decision made similar top the way the IOC picks Olympic sites: they try to hit each continent/region fairly? If you were going to hold it in an Arab country, which other one would be safer?
