Big crowd cheers US draw with England

FC Buffalo hosted quite the afternoon at Papa Jake’s, as around 200 soccer supporters cheered the United States in its 1-1 draw with England in the American opener for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

There was plenty of chanting — some printable, some not — as the crowd enjoyed beer and food specials. When the States evened the score, the bar erupted. It’s safe to say it was as close to an unforgettable viewing experience as we’ve had in some time.
