Belgium vs. USA

Yesterday afternoon it was clear that a lot of people in the Financial District were taking an extra long lunch to watch the USA play Belgium in the World Cup. The crowd at the Irish Times spilled off the sidewalk, & even Muni buses had to drive around them. Chants of "USA! USA!" alternated with tense silences. I knew the outcome of the game when I noticed how quiet the streets were 45 minutes later.
