Civic pride

“Civic pride” is usually associated with pride in your city. But I take a broader view, one still rooted to a place, but a place that can scale from smaller communities (e.g., neighborhoods) to larger communities (e.g., regions, countries).

Today, I expressed my civic pride at the national scale by cheering on the US Men’s National Team soccer match. It wasn’t just any match; it was a World Cup qualifier, against Honduras. After an embarrassing start to qualifying, the US had its work cut out. You might had even called it a must win. They won, emphatically, by 6 to 0.
