Yesterday I walked into the cafeteria at work and saw the seating area was PACKED. They have a couple of flat screen tv's hanging up and during big sports events you can find a lot of workers hanging out (don't worry, we have wifi in there :) This is especially handy during the NCAA tournament since we have so many Duke and UNC grads. Anyways, unless you've been living under a rock, the US won their game yesterday against Algeria to move onto the next round. When I walked into the cafeteria, it was already 90 mintes into the game. I turned around and watched for a bit and.....GOAL! Everyone goes wild. So fun to see a bunch of serious scientists go crazy - what a fantasic moment in sports!
This video is pretty cool - reactions of people when we scored. See, we can like soccer, too.
