team-usa-world-cup-watch-party-bacon-sportsFreaking USA Soccer. As Dickie V would say, “THEY ARE UNBELIEVABLE BABY!” Our friends over at LTS Chicago hosted a USMNT World Cup Watch Party at Benchmark that were thrilled to be part of. What isn’t there to love about throwing on tons of red, white, and blue, drinking good beer, and getting down with other fanatical US soccer fans. We got a chance to promote the Bacon, Sports & Beer Celebration and capture some good photo/video of the awesomeness that went down! Enjoy!

Might as well start with the best part of the watch party, everyone’s reaction to both USA goals. This is everything that is awesome about sports fandom and the World Cup. Here’s to hoping that this is just the start of what will be an unbelievable journey for the USMNT.

This isn’t the first time that we’ve captured some priceless reactions after a big moment in sports. We were there to capture the roller coaster reaction of two Browns fans during the NFL draft as Johnny Manziel was passed on and then selected by their Browns. We also captured the game winning goal in the 2013 Stanley Cup Final where the Blackhawks took home the Cup!

The man of the hour, Mark Biery. He was the brains behind the operation and lead numerous I Believe and U-S-A chants! We’ll be cheering on the USMNT with another Watch Party at Benchmark on Sunday. Make sure you get your ticket now before it sells out!

There were only two basketball jerseys being rocked. This MJ Olympic jersey was one of them. Get ready for a summer filled with tons of Jordan jerseys.

The guy in the green did a sweet spin move on the girl in the pink just before this picture. I told him I’d give him some dap since bar spin moves are always awesome.

A portion of every ticket sale went to Urban Initiatives, a nonprofit organization that runs health and eduction soccer programs. They sat at the tables next to us and were fun neighbors to kick it with.

I was the other person rocking a basketball jersey. I went with my Mitch Richmond Olympic jersey. Clearly I should quit my day job and become a singer.
