I lost my voice cheering for Team USA during a World Cup Watch Party at
Henry’s in Berkeley.
We got an awesome table thanks to Suzanne and Ryan. It was a fun game. It’s always a pleasure to watch soccer games with my
Deja vu from four years ago.
Another bittersweet ending. I kept thinking Team USA would get break in overtime. Heck, we scored a goal!
However – Belgium just played better and
knocked us out of the World Cup.
Better luck next time.
Day 58 of 100 Happy Days.
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.
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.
USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA!
Ignore my beer belly.
My buddy and co-worker, Suzanne, shot me shooting all the amazing World Cup fans at the Graduate in Davis.
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.
