Why We Love Sports: Golden Knights Hold Awesome Pre-Game Ceremony To Honor Vegas Shooting First Responders

USMNT Just Lost to Trinidad and Tobago

I didn’t watch one second of this game. I haven’t watched a United States soccer game since Landon Donovan scored a goal against Ghana in the World Cup. All I know is that our best player is some guy named Pulisic and there’s no way that guy’s American. I am actually a fan of soccer, I just don’t care enough to watch it.
