Tonawanda News — As I watched the game from home with my family, I browsed social media and was surprised to see that thousands of people were down at Canalside watching the game outside on a big screen. There were watch parties like this all over the area including on Hertel Avenue in North Buffalo and elsewhere.
The game was a roller coaster of emotions, such elation when we scored two goals to lead the game and such deflation when Portugal scored to tie. I may not be a die-hard fan decked out in face paint and wearing the American flag as a cape, but you can bet I will be watching today to see if the U.S. can beat Germany and advance. Go USA!
