Sean Mack's ATX Adventures: World Cup watch party at Easy Tiger

Party in the USA!

It was a weekend full of red, white and blue.  It started early with the July 4th holiday falling on a Thursday...and continued all the way through Sunday morning, when the US women's soccer team took on the Netherlands in the World Cup final.  The game was held in France and kicked off at 10am local time, so many bars and restaurants opened early for watch parties.  We got to Easy Tiger at the Linc around 9-and it was already packed!  Luckily, there was a little room for a beach chair we had in the car and we found a little space.  Austin Anthem(the fan group supporting our upcoming MLS soccer team) were on-site with raffle prizes, songs and chants.  I even won a gift bag at halftime!

The second half finally saw the ladies break through with their first goal.  Check out the crowd reaction(the goal is around the 1:30 mark)!

Austin is definitely a soccer town-we even led the nation in viewership yesterday...

Can't wait for Austin FC to get here-less than two years away!
