The entire city erupted in celebration and it sounded like you were listening to audio from the stadium itself.


hesalivejim t1_j0v9vlh wrote

Probably louder than anything allowed in the stadium


Wheream_I t1_j0xjvyv wrote

I was there in 2014 when they qualified for the final. I have a lot of videos from right after the last PK and then around the city that night, it was wild

Beef, footbal and occasional bouts with insane levels of runaway inflation. What a country!

Found the Brazilian


Rouxs05 t1_j0ydiai wrote

Worse than that. He is American. He can't stand he is not the center of attention because they are so irrelevant during the world cup.

Remember to feel relevant they have to call their own regional championship "world championship".

Y’all can play gridiron with us if you want

Naw man I lived in Buenos Aires for a bit. The beef football and insane inflation isn’t far off.

Beef: I could go to a 5 star restaurant in the middle of Palermo and get an 8oz filet mignon cut for about $14 USD.

I was there in 2014 and the city legit shuts down for football. I went to a BOCA juniors match and had a blast, and went to a WC warmup of Argentina v Trinidad y Tabago. So much fun.

And the inflation is insane. Exchange rates are set by the gov rather than the market, and we would exchange dollars with sketchy street vendors rather than official avenues because they were offering $15/$1 rather than the official rate of $12/$1

The way it goes from mostly peaceful to a cacophonous din of exuberant celebration...

It is hard for me to even imagine my country caring enough about anything to celebrate, united, in this way.

I was in downtown Philadelphia when the Eagles won the Superbowl and it was like this. As soon as the game ended everyone flooded into the streets. The lightpoles never stood a chance.


Jimmy_kong253 t1_j0uvycy wrote

I remember them jumping on a awning at the Ritz and it collapsing


d_4bes t1_j0uzqxp wrote

There was a kid I knew in a few of my courses at Drexel who was on that awning. Philly championship celebrations are definitely unreal, but nothing compared to a country winning a World Cup after being starved of it since 1986.


Savior1301 t1_j0vk5q7 wrote

Was about to come mention Philly right when we won the Super Bowl here


Blastmaster29 t1_j0wja9z wrote

Yeah people ate literal horse shit off the street to celebrate. Philadelphia is a weird place.


JejuneBourgeois t1_j0wt5xq wrote

I was in Chicago when the Cubs won the World Series. I imagine your experience was a lot like mine. I was stuck inside, studying for an exam and with my window open, up on the 10th floor of my building, it sounded like I was inside a stadium


Etrius_Christophine t1_j0wuri0 wrote

I was also there marching down broad. I’ll admit I kinda bandwagoned from playoffs on that season but it got me hooked.

The true unity of philadelphia, city of brotherly love, the kind that required trash trucks to party from and came together against Tom Brady…

Sorry, got a little lost there. Congrats to Argentina for their national moment of celebration.

I wouldn't say that united us. A little less than half of the population was wiping away tears with their maga shirts.


BigPickleKAM t1_j0usndh wrote

I was in Vancouver when Canada won the gold medal in men's hockey for the 2010 Olympics. Much the same as this but slightly less shirtless people :)

I'm not a huge football fan but that was an exciting game to watch!


skrame t1_j0v319p wrote

Some friends and I ran outside with brooms when the White Sox won the World Series in ‘05. This was in a small neighborhood in the south suburbs, and we were surprised other people were out. I can’t even imagine a major city exploding after a World Cup.


jelatinman t1_j0x7w5a wrote

Well yeah. There's many articles about like "oh shame on you for liking this World Cup." We need distractions because our lives are so fucking pointless and doomed, so let us eat cake for a bit. Not even trying to be an edgelord, just bread and circuses ya know.


E_M_E_T t1_j0vxok8 wrote

At least in the US, we're too busy fighting amongst ourselves, both in and outside of sports venues. Then we call the victor the "world champion."


glowstick3 t1_j0wa2jw wrote

Of the two sports that use "world champions" its quite an easy argument to make that no team put together of a single country could beat the team that won.


ConsiderationBoth752 t1_j0wd1vy wrote

Doesn't matter. Being the best in the world isn't the same as being world champion. You gotta win a world championship for that.


glowstick3 t1_j0wda3u wrote

Do you really want someone like the Bengals to steam roll a team from Japan? Do you really want to see a 100-0 score?

We already have enough with the laughable FIBA finals where our 3rd rate NBA players wipe the floor.


dindycookies t1_j0x2uw1 wrote

Yes I’d like to see a 100-0 score. I’d like to see the US go 1000 games unbeaten. Nobody will take your World Champion claims seriously unless you win a World Championship. Simple as that.


greenlightison t1_j0wril8 wrote

Doesn't change the fact that they didn't play the game to deserve the title


MattWey t1_j0x39ue wrote

I am from really small country, but managed to get 3rd player in World one time in a major sport. Very similar to this. Just crowds of people dancing, signing, going crazy as one. Amazing feeling.


barjam t1_j0y2fv9 wrote

I was downtown when our city won the World Series and a few years later the Super Bowl. It was a super cool experience.


Yes_I_Fuck_Foxes t1_j0y4azz wrote

Chicago had a similar vibe when the Cubs won the World Series in 2016.


HaikuBotStalksMe t1_j0wwbq3 wrote

I feel like even winning a war won't get this level of celebration. It's weird how obsessed people are with a game about putting a ball inside a net.


glowstick3 t1_j0w9qyn wrote

Ya kind of a dumb take honestly.

These happen in the US all the time. Case in point, cubs 2016.

Now as a whole country, ya probably not. But simply because the international level of the two sports most US residents watch are absolutely dominated by the US (basketball, football)


NBAccount t1_j0wdxuz wrote

Well, first off, American Football only really exists in America. That's like saying Australia dominates Footy-- no shit.

And I was in Chicago for that 2016 WS win. The insanity was really only in North Side. Half of the baseball fans in the city hate the Cubs. And even more people are completely indifferent to baseball at all.

But, all of that aside, can you think of any sport, or anything else really that would elicit this type of response from a majority of people in the U.S.?

As an American, I find the rest of the world's obsession and love of the World Cup absolutely awesome. Everyone is so festive, and when you win, the entire country comes together.

How are people even watching the game when they are out there in the crowd? No way the service would handle all those people streaming games from their phone.

The USA will end never enjoy a celebration like that, where the whole country is focused on and supporting a singular championship event. Sure some day the NY Jets might win the super bowl and parts of NY will erupt, but the rest of the country will be feeling meh… I’m jealous for the experience. Next World Cup, I’ll have to travel to one of countries in the finals and hope I pick the winning side.

Retail worker at DIY home improvement store in the early 80s. Super Bowl was a time when the store cleared out. Just us floor guys walking around in a near empty store floor. Same w Christmas Eve hours before closing. Except for grumpy old guys who come in asking, “You got any pots and pans?” That was their effort of Christmas shopping for their wives.

So cool. Wish people and the world could put their differences aside and come together like this more often for things more important than sports. Sadly nothing could ever change that.
