Memories of the Bandwagon

Go Team USA! One week ago – I gave up on cautious hope and believed our team could go all the way to the World Cup finals.
OMG #USA! Rocking the #worldcup madness in Davis #fb
It was a wild ride. It was a bit stuffy inside the Graduate in Davis….but I knew I was in the best place to watch the match.

Still riding on a wave of patriotic athleticism, the Daily Show interviewed Team Captain Landon Donovan and coach Bob Bradley.

It’s a great conversation about the sport, the World Cup and the fans.


Ignore my beer belly.
My buddy and co-worker, Suzanne, shot me shooting all the amazing World Cup fans at the Graduate in Davis.
On Duty

Team USA did its best to take down Ghana in the so-called “Field of 16.”
And for one glorious moment – it looked like we had a chance of moving on to the next round.

This goal drove the crowd crazy! It was exhilarating to be one with all Americans – cheering, chanting and hoping for a miracle on the other side of the globe.

By 2:00 p.m. PST – Ghana knocks out USA: 2-1.

In the end: Bravo, Team USA.
And better luck next time.
