    Reaction Around the US to Donovan's Goal

    Those of you who visit Deadspin may have seen that they had a lot of videos of how different people and places reacted to that goal, but here is that same video in a montage format, set to the theme of Rudy. Pretty good stuff.

    Full disclaimer - this was posted on HN earlier, and the video is really too good to not post here.

    I'm surprised to see all 10 locations throughout the U.S. actually showing soccer were able to find enough fans to fill up their establishments.



    Cool video, I am definitely watching the game Saturday.

    I knew it was probably like that everywhere but it's still fun to see other people act like I did. I was watching with one other guy at work and we freaked out. Getting a goal like that after feeling the tension build for 90 minutes is as good as it gets.
