The Ups and Downs of the US-Portugal Game, as Told Through Tweets

Andrea Powell | June 23, 2014 | Lifestyle Story City Life

Forgotten beer cozies, comb-over conspiracies, and a painful last-minute tie: yesterday's World Cup game between the United States and Portugal had the city celebrating and consoling. Here are some of the top tweets:

@BMahan415: HELP! If you're in #SanFrancisco and you're near #CityHall, I need a coozie! Left mine at the house.

@tweedlebop: Ronaldo getting a much needed styling and skin peel

@mikelcal: OH EM GEE!!! That was so close!

@GsMaverick: Unbelievable save by Howard!

@pesto: Wow. Just wow. That was amazing.

@gcheung28: Praise the lord for Jermaine Jones.

@Absolut_Pablito: I have to admit.. Between the amazing save and two perfectly executed goals, I'm warming up this

@scorpiogans93: Wow! This is so exciting! Hopefully USA can hang on!

@peterhartlaub: How freaking great is #USA. Pretty sure just scored a goal with our balls. #IBelieveThatWeWillWin

@aginnt: Despite #usa down by one, this is an awesome game and we are not going down without a fight #USAvsPOR #WorldCup #soccer

@tweeangelina: gosh I'm so sad we didn't get our point #devastation

@mgAndrus: Really need to watch the last 45 of #USAvsPOR to find the 5 of stoppage time. Last ditch effort to keep Ronaldo in #WorldCup2014?

@garywhitta: There’s an old English footballing phrase, “sick as a parrot”, which explains how you are feeling right now. #WorldCup2014

@abroshar: You gotta have hope, America. #WorldCup2014

@ObeseVegan: The #WorldCup2014 would be way cooler if the teams had mascots. "The US Apes." Think about it.

@olga_mfernandez: Man oh man...Such a tight game but we still have a chance! Not out yet.

@breyeschow: Are. You. Kidding. Me.

@seanfinney: Wasting time is an important skill the Nation still has to learn #wolrdcup2014 #PortugalvsUSA

@hisern: i'm STILL perplexed by the ref's comb over. i think that's why the US didn't win.... #WorldCup2014

@kerem: ESPN started showing baseball right after the #USAvsPOR game. Everything feels slow motion right now.

@AshleyWaxman: Another reason not to like soccer - it's ok to end in a tie?!
