Touchdown! US Soccer Fans Watch Team Fall to Belgium
It's 4 o'clock on a Tuesday afternoon in Columbia, SC - Delaney's Pub in Five Points is slammed and you better not be drinking a Blue Moon. I'm trying to find a spot without getting in the way of the servers scrambling through the mess and turn to the couple to my right, "So who's the most intense fan here?"
"Where's that guy with the flag?" One of them replies while scanning the crowd in the bar.
For some in Columbia, SC - like the rest of the world - daily life came to a grinding halt yesterday when the United States faced off against Belgium. Like most ignorant Americans, I know very little about the European nation who were happy to eliminate us from World Cup action. All that comes to mind is German artillery fire, waffles and beer that you need to drink with an orange. I guess that's why we lost.
I got to watch most of the game on the history channel - one of those intricacies of watching sports in public - the pariah TV(s) that broadcast the game a few seconds behind the live airing. In other words, you see people react to the play and then see the play on the TV.
