Where to Watch the 2014 World Cup in San Diego
Do you remember where you were when Landon Donovan put the ball behind GK Raïs M'Bolhi in the 91st minute of the US vs. Algeria game in 2010 World Cup? I do! Even though I had work that day and the sun had barely come up, I made my way to the Blind Lady Ale House in Normal Heights and anxiously hoped for a miracle. When Donovan placed Dempsey's rebound in the back of the net, the entire bar erupted with <a title="The World's Reaction to Landon Donovan's Game Winning Goal" href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbn3rOPmR9w" target="_blank">thunderous applause, high fives and a few tears of joy</a>!
Even though San Diego may not have a soccer team (cough, cough…MLS…cough, cough…Chivas needs a new home and a fresh start…cough, cough), it does have some of the most rabid football fans in the country (during the 2010 World Cup, San Diego ranked in the <a title="2010 World Cup Final on ABC: Most-Watched Men’s World Cup Game Ever" href="http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2010/07/12/2010-world-cup-final-on-abc-most-watched-men%E2%80%99s-world-cup-game-ever/56837/" target="_blank">top 5 TV markets</a>).
