Every four years, the interest in the Beautiful Game grows exponentially across our great country for the World Cup. This summer, more Americans than ever before gathered at public viewing parties or skipped work to cheer on the red, white and blue in Brazil.
So you would think that our national team’s key stars would have gained a bit more celebrity status in the process.
Clint Dempsey - only our national team captain who sent the entire country in a frenzy after scoring on the USA’s VERY FIRST PLAY of the World Cup - walked about New York City the other day for ESPN and asked passers-by what they thought of the national team, and, more specifically, about captain Clint Dempsey. The results will make you want to cry:
Really, guy #2?! You felt like the captain of the team should’ve been on the team? That doesn’t even make sense!
Best Saddest part of the video: Clint telling him his name at the end and he still can’t put two and two together.
