Soccer Bar’s Window Shatters As Fans Celebrate Team USA’s World Cup Win

The Atlantic Crossing (Seattle) is one of the top soccer bars in the Northwest. During the World Cup, it’s not uncommon to drive by and see crowds standing out to the street just to catch a glimpse of the action — if Team USA is playing, forget about being inside if you don’t show up when the doors open. In fact, here’s a refresher on the place: ESPN positioned a camera inside during the 2010 World Cup, and happened to capture the reaction to Landon Donovan’s game-winning goal in 2010 against Algeria.

There were no ESPN cameras (that we know of) in there today, but KING5 TV’s Chris Daniels was there capturing Instagram videos — one in the immediate aftermath of John Brooks’ go-ahead goal, and one when the final whistle signaled the end of the game. As you can see above, one of the bar’s large front windows was a casualty of all the mayhem.
