To help ESPN roll out coverage of the World Cup Draw, our New York office created a heavy metal band called "The Group of Death." For those in-the-know, 'The Group of Death' refers to a nickname to the one group that has more top-ranked teams than the others. (There is 4 teams in 8 groups)
The band reunites every four years and paints their faces the colors of the four unlucky countries and plays original songs like "Welcome To The Group Of Death" and "Your Love Is Like A Boot To The Face." Creating a Facebook and MySpace page, bloggers have all reported great interest. It all culminates with two live shows tonight at Nevada Smiths – the premier soccer pub in New York.
