I started off the World Cup rooting for Germany.  (Everybody else in north Jersey seems to root for Italy, so I root for the land of my other grandfather’s ancestors.)  Casual soccer fans in the US, in my experience, tend to root for whatever country they identify as their ancestry.  I watched the first few games, vaguely interested in learning more about soccer, and wound up utterly consumed.  I am fully on the bandwagon, baby!  And I am pleased and delighted by every aspect of this picture.  USA!
