As long as we have Teddy down there #IBelieveThatWeWillWin.

1. During Sunday night’s game between the U.S. and Portugal, Americans fans spotted a familiar face cheering the team along from the stands.

6. Thankfully, the folks over at Yahoo! Sports tracked him down. His name is Mike D’Amico and he actually wasn’t aware he had become an internet sensation.

7. D’Amico told Yahoo he decided to wear the costume because he thought people would be more likely to sing-a-long to USA chants if Teddy Roosevelt were leading them.

In real life, Teddy Goalsevelt (Mike D’Amico) is an associate creative director at Cavalry, the lead ad agency for Coors Light. Cavalry are now raising money to keep D’Amico down in Brazil for the whole World Cup. The agency promised to match every dollar donated up to $2,500.
