So, the other day I stopped at a store we have here on the east coast called “Five Below.” Five Below is like the most awesome dollar store ever and is targeted to teenagers. Everything at “Five Below” is five dollars or less, (¡obvio!) … Anyway, I stopped in the other day and was so psyched to see they had a big soccer section set up near the sports equipment in honor of the upcoming tournaments. Fútbolmania seems to finally be hitting the United States!
Not only did they have Panini album stickers, (of which I bought a ridiculous amount even though I keep saying I’m going to stop buying them), they had soccer balls, T-shirts, stickers, magnets, lanyards, sunglasses, cellphone cases, scarves and all kinds of things for the U.S. team and others.
So, here’s the deal, I bought a few things for a giveaway because I want to encourage everyone to cheer on the U.S. team. Many of us have favorite teams besides the U.S. team, whether we have roots or some sort of connection to another country outside the U.S., or a favorite player who isn’t from the United States, or maybe we just like the playing style of a particular team — Go ahead and cheer that favorite team on too, but don’t forget to show support for the U.S. team. Like I said, it seems like fútbolmania could catch on here, and as soccer fans, that’s super exciting. Let’s do our part to show the U.S. team support and get others excited about the sport. Are you in?
Congratulations to: Sarah Quezada!
