World Cup watch parties spread across the US

The Super Bowl might serve as one of the biggest annual watch parties in the U.S., but the World Cup appears to have turned the art of the get-together into a monthlong event for American sports fans.

From public gatherings with oversized televisions to rowdy sports bars across the United States, collective cheers and groans could be heard throughout the 2-1 win over Ghana on Monday.

Whether people are casual soccer fans or a member of the team's support group, the American Outlaws, the World Cup has provided the perfect outlet of national pride for many - with red, white and blue the only price of admission.
