Tucker Carlson calls Baltimore "one of the worst places in the western hemisphere, it's a little bit of Haiti in the mid-Atlantic.

I love Maryland but growing up here warps your perspective of what ďrichĒ and ďpoorĒ look like, and how we talk about Baltimore is Exhibit A

So Baltimore/DC gets screwed out of hosting 2026 World Cup.  Fuck those Euro-trash FIFA assholes.

DC doesnít have a big enough stadium so it really came down to Baltimore being passed up in favor of other US cities but yeah itís a bummer.

An Emo's type atmosphere...probably at the 8x10, though without the good music...

I will be in town for the Belle and Sebastian show.  I will only be in Baltimore for the night and need to kill time from when the show ends to when I catch my flight. So from, like Midnight to 7am.  I'm just looking for a place to grab a drink and maybe see a band.  I'm from Austin and if anyone is familiar with that area, I'm looking for an Emo's type atmosphere.  If you could please help me out I would be eternally greatful!

huh?  fed ex field can hold 82k, which gives it the second-highest capacity of the NFL.  you need to reach for the college stadiums, like the Big House, if you wanna go really big... but i didn't see them list any college venues, looks like its all pro football stadiums.

EDIT: WaPo writes "Baltimore and Washington merged their bids to improve the regionís chances, but because of FIFAís growing concerns about FedEx Field in Landover, Md., the matches were to be staged at M&T Bank Stadium." i wonder what those "concerns" are?  my guess: it's Snyder.

Exactly


Also Baltimore doesnít have an MLS team.

I think itís hard to argue with most of the cities picked.

There was some glorified exhibition match at the Big House with whatever team had Cristiano Ronaldo and the soccer losers said the field was oddly sized or positioned or something that made it suboptimal.

I think the Rose Bowl was proposed but didnít make this final cut in favor of Sofi Stadium.

This is FIFA. Dan Snyder is a choirboy compared to these uber corrupt freaks.

FedEx Field's problem is that it's a total dump and I'm sure that railing collapsing during the Eagles-WFT game at the end of 2021 sealed the deal. Of course, decrepit stadiums aside, nobody knows how World Cup bids truly work, unless it is really is cities offering $X to FIFA and trying to recoup the money.

The Rose Bowl was never offered, except for maybe practice. The NFL hasn't had a Super Bowl there in 30 years, why would FIFA play there instead of SoFi Stadium?

FedEX is a dump AND pulled out

It wouldnít have deserved to get picked
