The American culture doesn't jive well with the rhythm of a soccer match, let alone an entire tournament. Americans are results-oriented go-getters. But, for most of a soccer match, not much is happening. Not much is even close to happening. The lack of results-yielding action is too much to bear for many Americans; it is just un-American!!!
But, ahhh, that is the beauty of soccer. The lack of action is beautiful!!! Why? Because, this makes soccer a perfect sport for a party!!! A soccer match is really just a party in disguise. To get into it, you have to be drinking, singing, dancing...and then, only when the ball gets near the goal do you need to watch the game. The World Cup global party is now in full swing, and we want to invite you to party with us as we root for Team USA to go all the way...maybe beating a couple of Euro teams along the way (hopefully, the Frenchies).
To get you in the mood, let's take a look back at the 1999 Women's World Cup that took place in the United States. Blondie American player, Brandi Chastain, won the championship for America with her memorable goal and immortal shirt-off. It was one small step for blondie, one giant leap for sports bras.
