I'm rooting for the Netherlands to win it all in the World Cup. I know, I know...I should be supporting the USA -- and don't worry, I am -- but there's a funny reason why I support the Netherlands.
I'm an Eagle Scout. Back in 2010, I was in Albuquerque, New Mexico, preparing for a hike in Philmont Scout Ranch. There were about 20 guys in our crew of varying ages, and all of us were wearing bright orange collared shirts. We were in the parking lot of one of NM's state parks, when all of a sudden this other group of people saw us and ran over.
THEY THOUGHT WE WERE THE NETHERLANDS FUTBOL TEAM.
Of course, they realized we weren't the Netherlands when they got closer. Ever since then, I've been a fan of the Netherlands. Keep in mind that 2010 was when Spain beat the Netherlands in the World Cup Final (I wasn't a follower of soccer back then, though).
Still, it's a good story that I'll always remember. Nederland!!!
