Uncle Sam wants you … to watch video of the Portland fans’ tifo from last night

Jul 10, 2013, 11:40 AM EDT

We all knew the atmosphere would be brilliant for a U.S. match in Stumptown — even for a lopsided contest against Belize, a team of amateurs that apparently included six police officers.

Let’s hope they keep the law in the tiny Central American land better than they keep the ball on match day.

But never mind that – back to Portland, which hosted its first U.S. men’s national team contest since the memorable 1997 World Cup qualifier. (Thanks, Tab Ramos!)

Here’s how the USMNT night in Portland started, with the kind of clever tifo you’d expect from the Jeld-Wen faithful. Be sure to hang in there; it’s less than 90 seconds total. Because if you don’t watch all the way through, you won’t see green jacketed Uncle Sam rising majestically before the American Outlaw contingent.

Well done, guys.

    As much as you try to sugar coat it Steve, this article comes off highly insensitive. The world over grownups are getting splashed poolside by cannonballs. Many people have been accused of wearing undergarments that are “just the size of a cannonball.” The CIA failed to complete one and Woody Allen was one. These things do real damage, just ask Cannonball Richards.

    This video may be more enticing if “Uncle Sam” didn’t tax the fu*k out of everyone, and every thing.
