71st Minute Mayhem

For those who didn’t make it inside a venue to watch the match, here is a taste of what it was like. Though this is in NYC, it probably could have been any one of the thrity-seven locations across the continent. For certain, it was similar to O’Brien’s in San Diego except that our chant after Lando’s boot was “World Cup.”

(Can you tell I’m still jacked-up from the game that ended 24 hours ago?)

  1. Gives me chills, unfortunately I was not able to catch the game, but instead was with the in-laws. So I had these kinds of moments in my head as my friend was texting me updates.

    There was someone with a big tv camera with a light near the door at Nevada Smith’s too. I wonder if that made it on Youtube. That bar was gonna need structural repairs after LD put that ball into freaking orbit around the wall.

    The closest place I was able to watch the game was at a bar with 200 Hondurans in Kenner, LA. Great atmosphere, passionate fans, and everyone was courtious. A few Mexicans there were pulling for the US too… And I got a taste of the english language broadcast, until they figured out how to switch to the Spanish channel 15′ in. I’m suprised there have been no comments on the poor qualitiy of the English commentators. I’m glad they switched to Spanish, it was much better, and they actually knew all the players names. A great night!

      That is probably because the feed was terrible and we never got on audio.

      How many people noticed that Conor Casey was listed as Conor Kersey on the starting line-up graphic?

    Meh… there’s way too much room in that bar😛
    Sure did notice the typos… I mentioned the addition of a Davis and Kersey to our roster in a response to Matt’s post.
    The english/spanish audio potpourri was totally unintelligible to me, so I couldn’t tell if the english commentators were bad. I read somewhere that a foreign english feed was calling Palacios Paliakos.
