We did it, America. We’re through to the round of 16 AND we just proved to the world that we’d rather go insane over soccer than do actual work.

ESPN’s previous streaming record was 750,000 viewers at one time on WatchESPN. It was set during the Mexico-Brazil match last week. During its peak time today, 1.7 million people were watching the USA-Germany match Thursday afternoon.

They weren’t sure if the internet could TAKE ALL 13 INCHES OF AMERICA’S VEINY SOCCER PASSION. Alright, maybe that was a little too far, but those are some staggering numbers.

What do I love? I love happy hour, a good golf tan, and getting moderately drunk during dinner.
