Feedback: Viewing Parties and WC Team Kits

crowdWe’ve gotten a lot of feedback by email on coverage for two subjects:

  • Viewing parties for the US friendlies
  • World Cup team kits.

In that vain, TSG will gladly honor that feedback and put up a story/sidebar on both.

Viewing Party

If you have a viewing party for an upcoming USMNT friendly, just post it in the comments section in this piece.

If you would adhere to the following format, it would make TSG’s life easier (we still do not have an intern from Arizona State or UCLA, but I digress):

Which friendly: Slovakia / Denmark

What time: 5:00pm EST/PST, etc.

Where: Kell’s, The 500 Club, My basement

City, State: Gary, Indiana

Map link/Yelp link: (link)

Cost: (if any): Your left pinky, your don’t tread on me retro USMNT shirt, $5.99

Other/Summary: There will/won’t be beer or Must be 21/Must be 21 and like beer or AO Viewing Party, etc., etc.

This will allow us to cut and paste it at once into the body of a post. Thank you.

If you’re in Chicago, TSG recommends: The Small Bar

If you’re in San Francisco, TSG recommends: Danny Coyles


World Cup Team Kits

We’ll start a post here shortly, but if send us photos (as oppose to links) to shinguardian at gmail dot com.

Righteous and thanks….carry on.

Oh, and one more note. I would just like to “report” that two people have reached our publication today by searching for “Holden McGroin.” For some reason, that makes me happy.

      Awesome. I wasn’t aware there was an AO Detroit, or even anywhere to watch games in the area.

    When: 10am this Saturday, feel free to arrive earlier if you want (Slovakia vs USMNT followed by Brazil v England!)
    No cost, I’ll provide the beer and the food and maybe a little of that special green herb if you’re down.
    Send me an email at neal.181 at osu dot edu and I’ll give you my cell phone number as well as directions to my place. I got a pretty nice house with a 60 inch TV.

    I assume that no one even remotely close to me reads this, but hey, you’ll never know unless you try.
