What a game! – this morning’s World Cup Algeria-USA soccer match, of course. (I have no shame : I stole the first picture of Landon Donovan from the Yahoo home page. It so captures the joy of scoring that goal a in the 90th minute). Never say it’s over – until it really is over.
ESPN briefly cut to the Atlantic Crossing Pub here in Seattle after the broadcast to show the fans. The pub opened well before 7 am in the morning. Yeah! Seattle is arguably the USA’s most enthusiastic soccer city. Our own soccer team is called the Seattle Sounders. (Sounders from Puget Sound*, not for making noise! Or maybe it’s a word play on both?).
