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.
