One of the most awesome videos EVAH!!

Posted by: ST on June 24, 2010 at 6:04 pm

Even if you’re not a fan of soccer and you’re tired of hearing about the World Cup, you’ve got to love this video compilation of how Americans (and a few cities around the world) reacted to Team USA’s Landon Donovan’s game winning goal against Algeria. It will give you chills and make you tear up a bit, and make you proud all over again of our great nation.

There’s a lot of BS going on right now and a lot of bad news everywhere you look but for one moment, happiness and excitement and love of America prevailed (via @Cubachi):

    Exactly, NC Cop. Borrrrrring.

    Think about it….to see those 2 seconds of excitement, people had to sit through more than 90 minutes of want-to-slit-your-own-wrists level tedium. Watching Robert Byrd drone his way through the DC phone book on C-SPAN during a filibuster is at least 10 times more exciting than a soccer game. :d

    One of the principals at one of my children’s graduation today (there were two graduations today, middle school and high school) stated that this Landon Donovan has lived or lives the next town over. So..I love seeing locals doing something cool. And this was very cool.

    The only way this could have been more awesome is if the two crooked Turd World refs that tried to steal this moment from us were buried up to their necks at the back of the net, and Donovan bounced the hardest kick of his life off their ugly faces.

    Okay, it was soccer…and it has it’s moments. My son played and believe me once you get become a fan you will understand the game better. By the way…it’s the best game to raise a glass to (hehehee) that’s why soccer fans get so rowdy.

    But, this team has overcome everything from bad calls to downright nasty slide tackles that would make your head spin…You Go USA! All the Way!
