Downtown Chicago office workers extended their lunch breaks to watch the World Cup game between the United States and Germany.
One woman, Sugey Lozano, said Thursday that she was taking a long lunch and didn't mind if she got in trouble. She's watching in the lobby of her office building on 12-foot-by-22-foot screen where a small crowd has gathered.
Thousands of soccer fans were at Chicago's lakefront for the third viewing party in Grant Park. The U.S. tie with Portugal attracted about 20,000 soccer fans earlier this week.
U.S. Soccer, the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Sports Commission hosted the event. Fans could watch the game live on a 19'-by-33' high-definition screen at Grant Park's Petrillo Music Shell.
