“I believe that we will win! I believe that we will win! I believe that we will win!”
Who’s got World Cup fever? Even though the USA got knocked out of the Round of 16, you know what? We are all winners. Happy Independence Day to the greatest nation in the world! I’m so proud to live in America, and not repressive Iran or economically unstable Greece or even England with their monarchical system based on the divine right of kings.
A couple stats I’ve heard flying around:
- - More Americans are watching the World Cup than the Superbowl.
- - More Americans purchased tickets to the World Cup games than any other country, with the exception of the host country Brazil.
My husband and I are clashing when it comes to which countries we are rooting for. His heritage is British and Italian, so he is rooting for all the European countries. I love Central and South America, having traveled to Belize, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, and Peru, so clearly I am rooting for the countries on the Western Hemisphere!
Here are some awesome videos:
I can’t get enough of this hilarious video of Jason Sudeikis as an English soccer coach.
And lastly, unless you don’t recognize him up above signing autographs. That’s a picture of the amazing USA goal keeper Tim Howard who plays for Everton. We saw him when Everton came into town and hosted an event for their fans at Buca di Beppo. Dean is a huge fan!
