First of all, I grew up calling the sport soccer. That’s just what we call it here. And it turns out, according to this article, the British were the first people to call is soccer. So yeah, I’m gonna keep calling it soccer. With that out of the way, if you’ve been following the World Cup at all, you’ve probably seen Landon Donovan’s game-winning goal. It was a pretty amazing moment. And if not, here it is: (sorry for the bad quality)
I love the announcer’s call: “Oh, can you believe this? Goal! Goal! USA!” And now today someone has put together a video of a bunch of people watching the game and reacting to the goal. It’s pretty awesome. Yeah, it’s a little corny, but it makes me proud of our country and our team. Tomorrow’s game against Ghana is huge. I hope we can pull it off. But even if we don’t, the team has still given us a game and a goal to remember for a long, long time.
