Will Ferrell Has World Cup Fever Before United States vs. Germany
Does everyone remember back in 2005 when Will Ferrell was on a hot streak, but hit a bit of a speed bump with the family comedy Kicking & Screaming? Well, that's actually a movie that I enjoy the hell out of, because it lets Ferrell loose, and also has him calling Mike Ditka by the nickname "Juicebox." Anyway, Ferrell seems to genuinely love soccer, or maybe just sports in general, and with everyone getting World Cup fever, there's no better time for Ferrell to get crazy about the sport. And so he did during a visit to Brazil to hype up some fans rounded up by the U.S. Soccer Federation. He's playing in the game! Watch!
Here's the video of Will Ferrell getting pumped about the World Cup (via The Wrap):
“I'm not going to lie to you, I'm not in the best shape, but I'm going to try my best and live up to the spirit of this American team." Sounds like we having a fighting chance for this afternoon's game of the United States vs. Germany. As someone who doesn't care about sports, all this excitement isn't my cup of tea, though I appreciate the patriotism, even if it brings out a whole bunch of people who only care about soccer every four years like an ex-girlfriend who comes into town every now and then. Anyway, at the very least, all this World Cup hype is the catalyst for funny things like this to happen, so I guess that's pretty fun. Right?
