On the heels of one of the most exciting games and heartbreaking endings in US Men’s Soccer history, I’m going to go out on a limb here and start a dissenters movement. Because watching the swell of enthusiasm grow across the country as more and more embrace The Beautiful Game and the glory of the World Cup, there is really only way to describe what’s going on with the US Men’s National Team: this is Fucking Fun. So are we sure we want the US to become a perennial powerhouse? Isn’t part of the excitement that’s causing us all to dress up like lunatics and shake violently for 90+ minutes the fact that we aren’t really supposed to be that good? Okay, so maybe being stuck in the middle isn’t ideal for the long run either, but can we at least agree to bottle this excitement for a little while longer. Yesterday was all of the emotions in the world, but I still found myself smiling when all was said and done.
So what now? Well now we drink! Because as the World Cup continues and the fields narrow, our World Cup of Booze is going to get more and more important for your viewing pleasure. Bet you didn’t think you’d be drinking Guaro into the Quarter Finals but Pura Vida for fuck’s sake and congrats to Costa Rica. As for the US moving forward, we’re switching our recommendation to a tall glass of Rye because nothing pairs with the spectrum of emotions that goes with this years USMNT campaign like this true American spirit. You could go all fancy here but for this team, I think a bottle of one of the originals, Old Overholt will do just fine:
I believe that we will have fun!!!!!
