Yesterday the US Men’s National Team was seconds away from a historic victory in the World Cup when Portugal tied the match with mere seconds remaining. What a blow to the American team and its legion of fans, looking forward to celebrate the team’s advancement to the next round. When the US takes on Germany on Thursday, there will be enormous pressure on the Red, White and Blue.
To blow off steam yesterday, I browsed the Web for comedy posts related to all things fubol. Here’s what I found.
(1) Here’s a Mentalfloss article detailing the wild demands made by teams involved in the World Cup. Which team asked for baskets of bananas to be delivered daily to its team members? You can find out here.
(2) Comedy Central made a video in support of the U.S. efforts in the World Cup. Check out Stephen Colbert, Key and Peele, Jon Stewart and more in celebrating the US.
(3) Or check out this hilarious spoof of England’s Wayne Rooney. His corner kick goes awry and ends up in a very interesting place. Watch it here.
