All the speculation can begin now that the 2014 FIFA World Cup Draw is set.

Media is saying that the USMNT drew the Group of Death with Germany, Portugal and Ghana, while Honduras seemingly has the easiest task ahead with France, Switzerland and Ecuador. 

We want your opinion though. Vote now:

Sources say it may be an ugly one for the United States Men's National Team considering their pot placement, but that doesn't stop us from counting down to one of the biggest events in the sport this year: the 2014 FIFA World Cup draw. 

Who will be in the Group of Death? Do Klinsmann's guys stand a chance to make it out of group play? We'll only know that answer come June of next year, but all the speculation can begin tomorrow at 8 a.m. PT. 

Your boss won't care if you're a few minutes late to work tomorrow morning. Set your alarms, grab your breakfast and tune in to the big event beginning at 8 a.m. PT on ESPN 2/ Univision. Not by a TV? Follow the conversation on Twitter using #atDraw

Who knew Sam Cronin and Ty Harden were master chefs? 

The duo along with some members of the Earthquakes' front office made lunch for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House at Stanford on Wednesday.

Okay - so maybe they should stick to their day jobs, but we have to give it to them: they do dish out some mean quesadillas and BBQ chicken sandwiches.
