Tonight the #USMNT played against Belgium in World Cup 2014. I’ll spare you the details, and instead I’d rather focus on the camaraderie that forms when such worldly events take place. No matter who you are or where you are, during the last 2 weeks and for the next couple, soccer brings us all together. Specifically related to the US, as that is where I am located, you see a lot of pride here, even moreso than when the Olympics are on. I’ve been driving home during a game only to witness a large group of red, white and blue clad people posing for a picture on the street. I received 2 Snapchat videos today, one from the US and one from China, of excited people in a bar watching the game.
Even the tiny corporate cafe I go to for lunch sometimes is spirited for Team USA. It looks like they found a scarf to put over the chip selection, and right under the TV. GO USA.
