I'm not gonna sit here and pretend to be a fan of the boring sport known as soccer, but what happened today is an unbelievable achievement for the United States Soccer team.
Defeating the number one team in the world, Spain, sent shock waves around the soccer community. To put this into perspective, Spain hadn't been beaten in 35 straight matches and held a 15 straight win streak. This is only the second time in history that the United States has beaten the #1 ranked team (Brazil in '98). Team USA now has three days to prepare for a rematch with Brazil in the Confederations Cup finals and another chance at a monumental upset.
So, put your hands together and savor an exciting moment regarding soccer, because this is not likely to happen again!
