On Tuesday September 10th, in front of a sold out crowd of almost 25,000 we were able to watch the U.S. Men’s National Team defeat Mexico “dos a cero” while qualifying for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Following the victory, shortly after Honduras tied Panama 2-2, we were lucky enough to celebrate the USA’s seventh consecutive FIFA World Cup birth with the team. The team was universally gracious, approachable and ecstatic from coaches to players to support staff. We were able to witness a genuine sense of accomplishment and jubilation as the players and coaches socialized well into Wednesday morning but couldn’t resist keeping their eyes on the television watching their own SportsCenter highlights. A historic and special night that they and certainly we will never forget!
