World Cup 2022 - Qatar

Well, now that the World Cup 2022 was awarded to Qatar (disappointing the USA which looked like the favorite), we begin to think of what this World Cup might look like.  And so the NY Times' Economix blog points us to a site about buying alcohol in Qatar.  The general idea is it is very hard.

Perhaps they'll make it easier during the cup, or perhaps England will fail to qualify, which should solve the problem.

It took an Olympics for Salt Lake to liberalize their byzantine liquor laws, but they did. But part of the motivation was to try to blend in in their native land. Qatar will feel pressure coming from the other direction.

Plus, even if the British fail, you've got the Irish, German, and French teams to contend with.
