Amazingly Patriotic USA World Cup Face Paint Because America Does Sports Fanaticism Best

Say what you will about the US team's playing skills — I still believe we will win, mostly because otherwise my bracket is shot — they certainly have no shortage of completely committed fans who are ready to clog up their pores all in the name of patriotism. At the USA vs Belgium World Cup game on Tuesday there was no shortage of acne-inducing paint, proving that Americans will stop at nothing to be the most in-your-face fans at the match.

Sure, the rest of the world might be really good at cute face paint, but the United States of America has the whole crazy fanatic thing down to a red, white, and blue science. Stars and stripes mesh with majestic eagles to create wonderful works of patriotic art doomed to be sweat off in the 80 degree Brazilian heat. After all, God forbid anyone mistake you for anything less than USA's #1 fan. Check out some of the best painted mugs from the match.
