Hello all, Jerm here and I can't remember the last time I was this excited to write a blog. As you may or may not have known, Jerm is a huge soccer fan! So it is with great pleasure that I am here now writing to any and all who will listen about what we need to do to make the 2018/2022 Fifa World Cup a reality here in the US.

Being Jerm, I also just happened to have found a cool website that allows us all to voice our support for this effort! Check out the Go USA Bid website and get up to the nanosecond updates on the bid process as well as cool and informative news updates about everything soccer here in America via the Action Center, Match Center, or Blogs and sooo much more. They even have the social media angle covered, so be sure to become a Facebook Fan, Twitter Follower, YouTuber, or just check out the imagery on Flickr!

Now the most important thing that I want you to take away from this, is to be sure to go and sign the petition so that you may officially show your support for bringing this event to the US! We have also bid to be one of the host cities and have made the next round of cuts, so imagine if we win that bid! As far as Tampa Bay area events goes, it won't get much better than that!

For more details on everything though, be sure to check out Travis's blog post yesterday. In the meantime, I hope you all have a great start to the weekend, and as always be sure to check back for more updates on things to do in Tampa Bay!
