I started watching the local pregame show at 12 and they were showing all the craziness at Victory Park. I had never been to Victory Park before so off I went to enjoy the game with hundreds of other insane people.
Once I got down there I realized that I was way unprepared. I was sporting my red white and blue shirt so that was good, but I had failed to pack anything to sit on or anything to drink. I am slightly insane, but not quite insane enough to stand up and watch TV for 2 hours in 96 degree heat with nothing to drink.
Luckily Victory Park is a short walk from several dozen sports bars so I just picked one and watched it there. I still got to be part of the cheering when USA scored a bizarre goal to tie the game up 1-1.
I found a video of it so I don’t have to explain it! It’s like the ball was spinning or something. It hit the goalie square on, but then it just went by… See for yourself.
If I didn’t know better I’d say the Americans paid off the English goalie.
Anyway, a draw is much better than a loss. So go support your team. It’s great fun. You can stream a majority of the games from ESPN3 and get to choose from a variety of languages.
