Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.

I decide to celebrate the USMNT win with a delicious six pack of USA beer. I'm feeling kind of festive tonight so I pick up a 6-pk of Sam Adams Cherry Wheat since they are largest US owned brewery since Bud was sold to those Godless commie bastard Brazilians.
Anyway, I take a reading to the neck label and lo and behold, the cherries used in the beer are said to be Michigan cherries (balaton to be exact). So I call my buddy in traverse city who's married to the daughter of the Cherry Baron of Northern Michigan (kind of like the Beer Baron, but 30% less Rex Banner), and sure enough Jim Koch (owner of Sam Adams) makes yearly trips to TC to find his supplier for cherries for the year. The contract supplier to the brewery per the contract gets the first keg of Cherry Wheat brewed at the Boston brewery for that year and as many cases as requested.
So if you're looking for a way to celebrate our nation, our state, and beer, try a six pack of Sam Adams Cherry Wheat, it's delicious, good for Michigan football (the Cherry Baron's daughter is a Michigan grad and a significaant donor), and good for you.
