Yesterday, USA World Cup player Alejandro Bedoya celebrated the hard work of his teammates, and the great achievement of making it to the Round of 16, by gifting each of them with an engraved bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label – a rare blend crafted to toast epic milestones. The Scotch whisky’s reputation as a symbol of personal progress around the world with its Keep Walking mantra inspired the athlete to toast his teammates and the potential that lies ahead as they return home from Brazil. Here’s a link where someone can get their own bottle of Blue Label engraved!
Quote from Alejandro Bedoya: “I wanted to do something to commemorate the occasion, because win or lose, making it to the World Cup, especially to the Round of 16, is an epic achievement. We can’t change the past, but we can take a moment to reflect on this experience and use it to drive us forward. What we decide to do next, whether it’s on or off the playing field, that’s where all of our potential lies. I am inspired to keep walking down the road ahead.”
Below are some video clips of local team USA Supporters partying it up in the Gaslamp Quarter and Petco Park.
