Here’s a yellow card warning for all of the anticipation of the United States’ World Cup match against Belgium this afternoon: Most Americans aren’t that excited, even if many of them are rooting on the home country.
This is why we can’t have nice things, LIKE A WORLD CUP.During the US/Germany match last week, as I was sitting in the O-club surrounded by German pilots, it was an American officer (an older man, probably a colonel) sitting behind me that made watching the game almost intolerable. This man complained LOUDLY for the entire second half of the game about how much he hated soccer. Why was he even there? If you don’t like soccer, go home, go back to work, SHUT UP. He was such an embarrassment, complaining loudly about a game that everyone there wanted to see, insulting the Germans who were very politely watching and cheering along with the rest of us. Complaining about how much you hate soccer is UNAMERICAN. Americans love to position ourselves as underdogs even though we rarely are, and now suddenly we really are coming out from behind to do something amazing and you’re just gonna ruin it with your piss-poor attitude and entitled whining? Booo. Get outta here with that crap. #soccerforever #usausausa
Articles like this are the worst kind of semi trolling. At least the Ann Coulter article was full on trolling. You know how many Americans whose teams aren’t in the Super Bowl don’t actually give a shit about the result of the Super Bowl? Probably about the same amount, a lot of people watch it, but it’s a gathering to people much more than a sporting event.
The weird thing about soccer is that some sections of the US media seem like they will only accept the sport if literally every single American is watching a French 4th division match on a Wednesday afternoon. The sport is here, some people don’t like it, some people do. The amount of people who do will slowly grow here. The vast majority of people don’t watch golf, but I’ve yet to see a “61% of people don’t care who wins the Masters” article. If you don’t like soccer, don’t fucking watch it.
This is possibly the best worst headline to come out of the World Cup so far.
Guys, this is the best thing to happen today.

This is a compilation of the INCREDIBLE Clint Dempsey photoshops that Zoo With Roy has made. We’re really hoping that the US gets all the way to the final, so there will be even more.

he’s not the only one saying thatAfter the madness of Sunday’s U.S.-Portugal game, Jürgen Klinsmann was repeatedly asked whether his squad and Germany—both needing only a draw to advance—would settle matters with a handshake deal and noncompetitive match on Thursday. Klinsmann’s response was pitch perfect: “The U.S. is known to give all they have in every single game, otherwise Mexico wouldn’t be here.”
Great article that explains the history leading into tomorrow’s game.
What a dick! So he’s basically saying Mexico is only in the World Cup because of the US. REALLY.
The USMNT scored two goals in stoppage time to knock Panama out of the World Cup and let Mexico in. The US is literally, LITERALLY the only reason Mexico is where they are. You’re welcome Mexico, you still suck.
LETS DO THIS!!!!!
Pizza is ready for some World Cup action.
