LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT.
I think I may have caused a disturbance at work... I was running through the halls, fist pumping! AWESOME!
After coming back to work after going home for the game, I am still too amped to get anything done today. But, who cares?! After a whole game of almosts (and should have beens) that was just an incredible ending. Can't believe I have to stay at work for another 5 hours.
I don't think I've ever yelled so loudly or so lustily about anything but Michigan football.
i don't think i've ever celebrated a soccer goal ever until that! awesome!
I screamed so loud that I scared the diaper off my daughter. It literally took me 20 minutes to get her settled back down.
YOU CAN GETTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT OUT!
first double post. my bad. USA USA USA! Unbelievable...
USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I haven't cried like this since Braylon took over against Little Brother...
It's all good I think a few hundred million people in this country did as well. Go USA!
Wow, that was amazing!
It should have been something like 7-0 . . . but I'll take 1-0. Incredible!
Thought it was over, that was WILD.
Donovan, you showboater, just trying to make it dramatic...
I have a feeling that game is going to spark some huge support for soccer in this country.
I was rounding and stopped outside a pts room who was watching it. I just stood there for the remaining 20 minutes of game time. After the US scored, I raised my arms with a muffled yelp while hearing people cheer all down the hallway. A nurse I know saw me and frantically ran over yelling "Did they score!? Did they score!?" While explaining what happened to her, I saw a nurse aid hugging someone from PT. This is what makes the World Cup awesome.
Staff and patients alike excited and cheering, and many of our patients are very sick too. My eyes were teary, I was half embarrased over how proud I felt -trying to remain professional but wanting to jump around like a screaming banshee- trying not to do anything to alarm our patients, but that was a great moment. You're right, this is what makes World Cup very special.
Party at Stanzi's house tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THE USA IS NEVER OFF TOPIC!!!!!!!
YEAY LANDON DONOVAN!!!!!
Ironic that you would post that based on your username.
Cry all you want USA!!
You obv never won something you cared about BIG GAY
babby? some sort of alternate version of a baby?
-31. Drop the negativity. This is a moment these guys have been waiting for their whole lives. They have earned the right to cry.
You comment on a thread that was created for the sole purpose of celebrating the United States' victory and bash the team. What did you expect?
you win something like that ... you cry ... tears of joy
i cried when they scored, and i am dammed proud of it, damn proud of that team, damn proud of their effort and never say die attitude, and damn proud to be an american
Better than muppets.
doesnt get any better than that.
Never fails to send a chill down my spine every time I hear the call...
I wish I could have seen this at home!! Gamecast just doesn't do it justice!! This is why I love soccer.......every four years for a few weeks.
That was quite an anxious ride, and it is nice that the USA could win, especially considering the fact the officials questionably disallowed another goal early. How did Altidore miss so badly?
Landon Donovan 2012.
I know you're just being an instigator, but it drives me nuts when people say stuff like that seriously. 99% of the country has never worked half as hard as the USMNT in anything.... working hard leads to emotions, period. Sitting on couches, crushing beers in between rounds of Halo on XBox, and calling grown men babies, um, doesn't.
Because obviously. But I wouldn't insinuate that he does the couch potato/xbox/beeer crushing thing either.
EW ES A!
I think I have the coolest boss in the world. He hooked up a giant tv at the end of the hall for all of these games. Actually, I know I do.
Or can you point me in the right direction?!
its not espn coverage, but it works
tears and ejaculate... in a good way this time
way to go boys - helluva game
My medical school lecturer thought we were cheering for her when half the class started yelling at the same time. GO USA!
I totally agree. I was absolutely furious at the Algerians for crowding the passing lanes like that. You could literally smell the douchejuice flowing out of them. They alsoappropriately sported traditional 80's movie villain haircuts. I think this is the first time I've ever hated a team in soccer.
anyone know where i can see the game winner?
espn still only has the halftime highlights availabe
i really hate the worldwide leader sometimes...
Nice to finally get a Victory!!!! USA USA.
First postgame interview ever where the player says "hi" to his ex-wife?
I know there are people here that don't care for soccer. But that was one of the most dramatic victories ever. GOTTA LOVE IT!!!
I was only able to see snippets of the game, but each time I checked it out in the second half, you could sense the desperation growing, the angst of each shot missed, another opportunity foiled. Then the freakin' melee that resulted in the goal, Whoa!
I now know why announcers give that prolonged "Goooooooooooolllll!!!!"
USA USA USA!!!!!!!!
That was awesome. I get goosebumps every time they show the replay of that goal. I know some people don't like watching soccer and rightfully so, but that was an exciting game to watch and im so happy the U.S. isn't going home because they were getting jobbed by the refs. Hard earned win. USA! USA! USA!
I almost put my foot through my plasma multiple timew out of frustration in not finishing. Thank you, Landon Donavan, for saving my TV.
I was at Bailey's in Troy. The place absolutely exploded with the goal. Everyone was shouting USA USA USA! I haven't enjoyed a game so much since Mich beat Florida in Lloyd's last game.
Notre Dame last year?
That was an awesome win too, no doubt.
i was at charlies ...
the bar went nuts .... i was just in tears waving my flag around ... what a day to be an american
