USA Smokes Ghana In World Cup Opener & Celebs EXPLODE With Joy On Twitter! See What Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon, & Everyone Else Tweeted HERE!
Holy Brazilian barbecue: WE DID IT!!!
Experts didn't expect the United States men's national soccer team to win too many games at the 2014 World Cup, but they're off to a fast and furious start!!!
The American boys kicked the crap out of their soccer balls Monday evening, defeating Ghana 2-1 in a most gloriously dramatic fashion.
When John Brooks, a 21-year-old stud-muffin playing in his first WC game, scored the winning goal with only a few minutes left to play, the Twitterverse EXPLODED!
While a lot of casual soccer fans come out of the woodwork every four years for this massive tournament, it sounds like many of our favorite celebs are diehards woke up this morning and painted the soccer ballz in their pantaloons red, white, and blue!
