A World Class Bender: Argentina hasn’t stopped partying in the streets since winning the 2022 World Cup
Argentina has been on a world class bender ever since Lionel Messi and the rest of the boys won their country their first World Cup trophy in nearly four decades.
Airport: Buenos Aires, Argentina
Buenos Aires, Argentina at 3AM
Update from TODAY: Still Partying
There is ZERO shot that anyone has slept since Argentina won the World Cup on Sunday. The streets have been jam-packed ever since and honestly, you can’t blame them. You have Messi, the World Cup, and a country that hasn’t won it in 36 years. I hope they take the celebrations right into the New Year.
In my lifetime, I’ve attended to championship parades. The 2008 Phillies Parade on Halloween and the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl Parade. It’s hard to even imagine the United States celebrating a World Cup and what the scene would be like.
Side Note: Ideally, they would have the parade in a better city than Washington DC. Bring that World Cup to Broad Street. We’ll party for weeks. You have my word.
And for those who say this wouldn’t happen if the USMNT won the World Cup, I really believe you are completely wrong. There’s nothing like a country-wide celebration and the bandwagon would be out in full effect. The only thing Americans need is an excuse to celebrate. That’s all it will take for streets in every city to be flooded with drunk patriotic maniacs at the very least, pretending like they care about soccer while really just using it as an excuse to do nothing but party.
Argentina made the smart move by declaring this now 3-day long party a national holiday but it’s not like they really had a choice. Who the hell is going to work when you look outside the window and there’s hundreds of thousands of your fellow citizens still in the streets celebrating a god damn World Cup? The answer is no one.
