They say the U.S. lacks World Cup spirit but we disagree. Sue (a self-proclaimed German fan) and Rhys (one of those guys who still pretends Ghana and/or Brazil is still playing) took a trip to the Lower East Side to watch the Germany vs. Spain semifinal match with a 97% German fan crowd. They quickly learned that no matter where you come from, it’s easy and worth it to get swept up into emotional wave of a World Cup match. It’s all about picking a country and loving it for any and all reasons including: being from there, living there, respecting their sportsmanship, and liking their men. In such a diverse and random place like New York, soccer can unite us all, at least for a few weeks.
Shouts to Sue and Rhys for the video.
