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!
