Recapping USA’s Glorious 1-0 Victory- In Phoenix Landing

The ONEin3 team ventured outside city limits (THE HORROR) to Phoenix Landing to take in the soccer loving scene for USA v. Algeria this week.

I’ve been to bars for lots of sporting events and I’ve seen lots of soccer games on television, but I’ve never been to a bar for a big soccer game. I’ll be doing it again. The American Outlaws brought all kinds of people out to support the good ole US of A and there was chanting, cheering and Guinness drinking starting at 830am. Aside from interviewing people who were just as nervous as I was, I stressed out with the support of my fellow fans for 2 straight hours of no-goal yet electric soccer. The US came so so close to scoring, most notably when Dempsey hit the post and when Dempsey ACTUALLY SCORED and had the goal called back. I guess that’s karmic payback for Mr. Robert Green’s miscue in game 1 v. England. Anyway, all that stressing and hoping and disappointment was paid back in spades when the place erupted for Donovan’s game winner. It was truly crazy. I’ve seen YouTube clips from all over the country, including Lincoln, Nebraska, the home of the American Outlaws. I can tell you that Phoenix Landing was as crazy, if not crazier than ANY of those places. It was nuts.

NIJU Relives the experience

I couldn’t sleep the previous night. I hate that the world cup does this to me- every four years. I am anxious, nervous and if it is not football related I do not DO NOT want to hear it. I reached Phoenix landing a little late and was disappointed that Devin did not bring my Vuvuzela. The previous night my dad had warned me not to jinx the English team by watching them play. It was hard to see anything since I was one of the smallest person there. We had a couple of British people on the side and it was amazing to see as people of different nationalities braced to see their nations play. There I was with my confused identity hoping that both England and USA made it through.  At half time Devin was pretty much like this

I should stress here that I had more faith in the Americans so I wasn’t as stressed as Devin was during half time. I switched to the england side of the pub simply because I couldn’t imagine this team loosing.I mean how could they? i have seen them long enough to know if there is one thing this team knows its is HUSTLE, HUSTLE and HUSTLE. In the 90th second I saw what had happened and went into the background so that nobody saw me cry. There it was one minute after the moment that both the Americans and British rejoiced with their hands in the air and dancing in the streets.

Week 2 – The French Revolution, Bromance – It’s the World Cup!

1. The French Started a revolution

It started with a handball which crashed Ireland’s world cup dreams. This handball became the second most famous handball after HAND OF GOD (please see Kanye’s confirmation below) . It was so popular that the man responsible (THIERY HENRY– former legend)  beat NEW MOON ( YES  TWILIGHT) on Twitter.

They have a coach the whole nation hates.. some of them hate each other .. or are jealous of each other. The following list of events have imploded the situation. The players are refusing to train.. the captain thinks there is a traitor amongst them.. he went on a hunt to find this traitor and came to the conclusion – it is the fitness coach ( their fight is on Youtube). The team decided not to train and locked their coach out of the team bus. The President was asked to intervene. This is comical, sad and a result of watching the popular movie MEAN GIRLS too many times.

2. The USA team is so popular now that even their body parts have twitter accounts.Last we heard  @StuHoldensHair was fighting with @Goochs_beard

3. The reason for Spain’s shocking loss is speculated to be the goalkeepers Girlfriend (is a reporter was standing behind the goalpost).. apparently is hotter than a woman called Erin Andrews.

4. A man walked into the English locker room looking for the restroom. Happens everyday right??

5. Also, Wayne Ronney wants you to know- YOU CANNOT BOO HIM , just because he cannot ROO the ball does not mean he won’t ROO you.

6. Landon Donovan is working on his book- WORLD CUP ADVENTURES OF EPIC BROPOTIONS. Read some of the preliminary notes. Elsewhere Tim Howard is mad .. he is really mad

7. Italians have decided to limit their talents to looking good this year.

8. The fellowship of the Vuvuzela! Middle Earth is preparing for the World Cup.

9. Paraguay has the most awesome team hurdle  

10. Can we all please support NEW ZEALAND
