Here's a sobering perspective of the USA's failure to reach a World Cup in 32 years:

Christian Pulisic will be 24 before he gets another shot at helping America qualify for one.

For a 19-year-old, that's gotta seem like forever.

The silver lining is he'll have ample time to hone his already-prodigal skills. In Europe.

Of course, it's not just Pusilic. The USA has other talented young players gaining valuable elite-level experience in Europe, as well.

There's a simple reason why the Americans didn't make the World Cup, and The Daily Player has no problem laying it on the line.

We at Fanorama have no problems, either. Just get us to the local dive bar in time for Happy Hour and we're golden.

Having a little extra jingle in our jeans never hurts, either. That's why we're hawking this primal t-shirt that simplifies life:

beer is the answer t-shirt

We cover all bases. This universal response to the world's challenges also can be had in long-sleeve, dudette, and parka form.

That's right. Parka. Don't say hoodie in a dive bar unless you want someone to give you a flower or something.

And don't say we're not thinking of your budget. The price is a measly $21.95. This is why you should buy from dudes who are happy in a dive bar. We don't gouge.

See you at checkout.
