LYNN HAVEN, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Goals by Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle gave fans of the United States Women's National team plenty to cheer about around the world—in France at the World Cup Final and across the nation.
Inside the Beef 'O' Brady's in Lynn Haven, American Outlaws chapter 139 donned the stars and stripes to cheer loud and proud the team the love for 90 minutes (and again for the men's team later that night).
"We might have different club allegiances," chapter president Stephens Croom said, "but when it's the US, you only have one allegiance and its to them. It's to the players supporting them. There's nothing bigger than the World Cup for our men and women."
They packed the restaurant for every game the men's and women's national teams play.
Out of towners and out of staters joined in on the fun during Sunday's final. When the US teams are anywhere nearby, you bet at least a few of these Outlaws will make the trip there too.
"Our chapter members have traveled to out west in Phoenix. One traveled up north to Denver," Croom recalled." Others have gone to Orlando, Jacksonville, Atlanta, Nashville, Birmingham."
American Outlaws sports more than 200 clubs around the world, mostly in the United States, and has more than 30,000 members.
