This feels like a milestone of some sort for U.S. soccer, Gene Maddaus writes in the LA Weekly.
At halftime of Thursday's match between the United States and Germany, the meter at the DWP's Franklin Canyon reservoir registered a spike in water use. A modest spike, but a flushing bump nonetheless. "Water usage then dropped sharply during the second half. It spiked again when Angelenos went to the bathroom en masse at the conclusion of Germany's 1-0 win," Maddaus notes. "The 'Super Bowl Flush' is well documented, so this is not exactly a surprise."
