U.S. Soccer Hosting Viewing Party at Arvey Field (in Sloop)

If you're like us, the World Cup excitement has swept us into a frenzy of anticipation to see how 'merica will fare in the vaunted group of death.  Well tonight is our first chance to see what's in store and if you're looking for a fun way to watch the game, U.S. Soccer is hosting a viewing party in our front yard:
This June, U.S. Soccer will host three 2014 FIFA World Cup viewing parties for the U.S. Men’s National Team matches. The events are free and open to the public.
“All soccer fans are invited to the event to celebrate the spirit of soccer and the U.S. team for these three important matches,” said U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati. “We hope these events will help connect the fans with the team and strengthen the bond between the two.”
Supported by the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Sports Commission, the viewing parties for the USA’s Group G opener against Ghana on June 16 and the U.S.-Portugal match on June 22 will take place at Arvey Field, near the Columbus Drive and Roosevelt Road intersection, in Grant Park. The Petrillo Music Shell at Butler Field, located near Columbus Drive and Jackson Street in Grant Park, will host the June 26 event around the USA’s final group match against Germany.

Pretty sweet and sounds fun.  Maybe we will see a goal like this:

Not holding our breath...
