Kid Busts Out Truffle Shuffle at World Cup

by at . Comments

The U.S. women's team fell to Japan in the World Cup final yesterday, but this kid's epic celebration of America's first goal almost made up for it.

Seeing his native country take the lead late in the second half (the Americans ultimately lost on penalty kicks), was too much excitement to contain.

Watch this youngster back the Truffle Shuffle in all its glory ...

NOTE: If you don't know the origin of the Truffle Shuffle, follow the jump for a clip from The Goonies (1985) and the above clip will seem even funnier:


This World Cup Final was one hell of a game, and that's indubitable. This match will go down in the history books as one of the greatest in modern football--and I never thought I'd say that about any female sport. David defeated Goliath. What we witnessed was a miracle, where the girls never lost hope: they came from behind in dramatic fashion, not once but twice, to win in penalty kicks. Nadeshiko Japan not only inspired a nation but the entire world. A lion-hearted man (Rocky Balboa) once uttered: "The world ain't sunshine and will beat you to your knees, and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done."
