6/23: This Day in USMNT History

Happy Anniversary, Landon Donovan!

Three years ago today, I didn't start watching soccer...I started loving it. Over in another part of South Africa, we knew England would grab a win, giving them five points and forcing us to win in order to advance from group play. Well something special happened about 45 seconds into stoppage time.

best video of goal I could find with minimal searching

What a day.

I had the pleasure at coming in to Baton Rouge from out o town and being at Plucker's.

That place was popping afterwards

If you're the dude I hugged, I apologize.

If you're the waitress I hugged, I hope it was as good for you as it was for me.

You took the words right out of my mouth. I couldn't believe it had taken me 19+ years to start watching soccer.

I was working at a day camp where I went to high school. When we scored I took the giant American flag that was on the wall and started waving that bitch like crazy. I was in charge of 5 and 6 year old boys. I'm pretty sure they had no idea what was going on by by God they were excited

ETA: Oh and frick England

On that day I believe I just got home from work and I missed the first half and part of the second. Hell of a feeling when they got that goal.

I can be seen ever so briefly in the doorway at :33, jumping around with my arms raised.

I'm at the bar just hugging everyone I can. Pluckers was the best place possible to watch a game. Cheap drinks and packed as many people as could fit. Moment shall never forget.

I loved booing the British in the George Washington charger commercial..every single time
