Okay, I must confess posting this after the US lost in the World Cup is not so fun. :( waa waa
BUT-- I still have really great memories of MOST of the game and our crazy US fan-base!
Our whole family gathered around the TV to watch the US play Ghana and before long Dan walked in from outside marching back in forth in front of the TV with our flag. Well, then the pandemonium began! KK had a turn at it and then, Scarlet, who can't be left out of anything had a go!
We were a little down when Ghana scored the first goal, but knowing that the US is a 2nd half team, we still held out hope.
Then the gorgeous Landon Donovan scored his penalty kick and the house went MAD! Patrick picked up the flag and took off running up and down our street screaming, "GGGGOOOOAAAALLL!" at the top of his lungs while we all stood in the front yard screaming "GOAL" as loud as we could. It was about the funniest thing I've ever seen and I'm sure the neighbors think we're even more ridiculous than before.
Let's just pretend now that that was the end of the game, shall we?!!?!?
No? Well, the US lost and shattered our World Cup dreams and we were a sad house with a great memory of our crazy eldest son. Worth it? YES!!!!
