WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — “I believe that we will win! I believe that we will win! I believe that we will win! I believe that we will win!”
I suppose it’s wrong on some level it took the United States upsetting Ghana — who’s eliminated the U.S. men’s national team in the past two World Cups — after John Brooks gave the U.S. a 2-1 lead, scoring on a header off a corner kick in the 86th minute, to wake me from my World Cup slumber.
The truth is, I, like many others, was sleeping under a gigantic boulder on the nationalism brought on by international soccer, and have now shamelessly shoved all in on USMNT.
Even more truthful, I barely understand soccer terminology, and have to turn to a co-worker for consultation to not sound like an illiterate fool when writing about it.
But none of that matters, because the U.S. just beat Ghana, and John Brooks is a national hero, and everyone’s butt cised.
There are others like me, I’m sure. Many more, in fact. Take this guy, for example, who called into the Junkies Tuesday morning.
