America Scores on Algeria for the Win: The Original and the Remix

Nicely played. Oh and following, here's the full video of the actual World Cup awesomeness and winning, if you care.

Speaking as a White American Male, it's bizarre to find a human endeavor where I am an underdog.

I need my sexwife and pool full of virtual currency to make me feel better again.

Don't worry, you still are. The Yurpean press is already bitching – AGAIN – that the US didn't play well, it just that Algeria played worse. Like England did. Because it's only a fair win if you play better than the other guy when the other guy is playing well.

And this is why I don't usually read the sports pages.

But the US DID play pretty shitty. And if they face Germany in the next round and play that undisciplined their world cup will be over.

Yeah Choire! Thank you!

Fuck you Belgium. Call offsides on that shit.

Fuck you Algebra!

I nominate you to yourself for the "best comments" feature. That is the funniest thing I've read in a long time. (Stupid Algebra. And the Republic of Geography, over there near Russia somewhere, can suck it, too!)

Ha! Thanks Dave.

This video makes me want to drape myself in an American flag and dive into a pool of ranch dressing. USA! USA! USA!

Pft. Real Americans dive into pools of mayo.

Miracle Whip. Get it straight.

It is only my lack of a pseudonymous username that prevents me from talking about how fucking awesome that was.

I care! #awlpostsididnotexpectespeciallyfromchoire

This so perfectly illustrates how at odds I feel with my bouts of World Cup patriotism. Still: America, fuck yeah!

America: always more fun when it's the underdog.

keisertroll (#1,117)

So, that's like the third, fourth time in fifty years we've ever been the underdog in anything?

Abe Sauer (#148)

Well, congrats USA. I am pulling for you but at the same time, a loss here would have allowed fans to bitch about how the team was robbed of a clear goal FOR THE REST OF TIME. Now, that is all erased and no longer relevant. Ah well.

Am I the only one that reads the acronym "USMNT" as "United States Mutant Ninja Turtles"? I thought the guys from Deadspin were just messing with me until I realized what it stood for…

Nope, I do the exact same thing. Even knowing what it stands for, I still do it.

It's something that is just crying out for illustration.

That explains why Landon Donovan sounds like the guy who played Cousin Oliver on "The Brady Bunch".

This is why I love America: your country advanced, and my failed. In any other country in the world, I wouldn't be able to leave my apartment for months out of shame. Here, I can walk out my door tonight (as long as I avoid other foreigners) as if NOTHING has happened today. Only in America!

keisertroll (#1,117)

He's one Donovan who hasn't consistently disappointed me in the past decade.
