“The Globe is a place to watch football (soccer). When there are no matches being played, it looks like one of many neighborhood watering holes where people meet, eat, drink, laugh, shed tears, talk sports, dance, and drink some more, And maybe then the name of the pub or being in a world city like Chicago wouldn’t even matter.

But during a match, The Globe becomes just what the name says: the churning, whirling center of the universe where supporters from Munich and Milan, Glasgow and Guadalajara, Seattle and St. Petersburg, Barcelona and Birmingham, Norwich and New York, Capetown and Chicago – and, of course, Liverpool and Manchester – cheer, cry, chant, and curse, then pray that stoppage time will be enough for a miracle.”
