It would be possible, but too much time is spent on one Greyhound bus or another, and little of the country is seen; except for
soccer stadiums offering hamburgers and cokes, bus-station lockers if they work, and the
moving hands of time that push you on. One missed connection in the early stages, and it
could all fall apart; the project pointless.
England are not even in the competition, and are you such a fan that
you would pay to watch 90 minutes of Mexico v's Norway, or Morocco v's Holland; both
Europeans, there at the expense of your country?
So a more leisurely option is chosen....
It is too early to spend all your money in the clothing houses of Chicago,
and not too exciting to prost with the Deutsch.
It's almost an impossibility to taste the Manhattan cocktail, with
thousands of resident Irish and Italians in and around New Jersey.
And it will hardly be a tea-party in Boston, where the hand of God is to give it a stir.
So that determines the dome of Detroit as the first destination to
draw your attention for the qualifying round.
