Comedian Carey joins board

NEW YORK -- With a board like this, the United States should win the right to host the World Cup in a laugher.

Comedian Drew Carey is joining the board of the U.S. bidding committee trying to land the tournament in 2018 or 2022.

Host of the television show "The Price is Right," Carey is part owner of Major League Soccer's Seattle Sounders.

Australia, England, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands-Belgium, Russia, and Spain-Portugal have also bid to host both World Cups, and Qatar and South Korea bid for 2022 only. FIFA's executive committee will decide in December 2010, and England and Spain are seen as the leading contenders to host in 2018, while the United States is viewed as a top candidate for 2022.

Next year's World Cup will be in South Africa, and the 2014 host is Brazil.
