The World Upside Down

Let me first state that I don't put a whole lot into the FIFA world rankings, but think for a minute. USA #6? In the world? We don't even call it football in this country, and our first division league can't manage to average 15,000 in attendance. And yet, #6. It should also come as no surprise that Mexico is ranked fifth, their highest ever, which I feel can be attributed to the strength of the USA and the mutually beneficial rivalry that has developed into one of the fiercest in the world.
