Andres Iniesta is one amazing player — keeps quiet, does his job, and does it extremely well. So well, many think he was overlooked for player of the year. Either way, he is the star of the new Nike CTR360 TV spot — and as usual, Nike again comes through with an incredibly mesmerizing ad.
So unless you are living under a rock – you know that Landon Donovan scored for the USA in the 90+ minute of our game versus Algeria. This one moment was one of the greatest feelings in my life – pure euphoria. Well someone has taken some of the best (not sure why DC wasn’t on there..) and compiled them into a great video that will have you chanting with them – U-S-A! And it doesn’t hurt he chose one of the best songs from any movie (Rudy).
Look out world – the USA is starting to follow soccer! And if you still don’t like soccer, just try explaining yourself without sounding like a moron.
