The dream is over Ireland

FIFA dashed any lingering World Cup hopes Ireland had by rejecting the country's plea to be the tournament's 33rd team.

One suggestion I recently heard from a co-worker was having Ireland and Costa Rica -- another team that suffered a dubious exit -- play a high-profile friendly to kick off the events in South Africa.

Could be cool, but I doubt it would ever happen. Sepp Blatter isn't one to admit guilt or concede anything.

Bono and Sepp's No. 1 fan won't be happy.

Screw-jobs happen.
