As much as I love to watch Tyler play, I never got in to actually watching soccer [David Beckham on the other hand..] but this World Cup has changed that. The games have been so exciting, I love critiquing the uniforms and shoes, the Kia "fútbol" commercials are awesome, and Dempsey's goal in under a half-minute in the opener almost gave me a heart-attack from excitement and extreme pride as an American. I've even found myself watching games when Tyler is not home and texting him about my favorite goals. I was sad about Spain, beaming over Mexico's three second-half goals to dominate Croatia [heritage, people! The rule is I canroot for them as long as they're not playing the US!], and feel so proud hearing fans screaming "I Believe that We Will Win!," "USA! USA!," and of course "Olé, Olé Olé Olé!" Even non-soccer fans are excited about the games.
We're never favored to win, but I love this team, and "I believe that WE WILL WIN!" Now, don't bother me for the next 90+ minutes.. And if you're not pumped, watch this video! Win or loose, we will always have our American pride!
