Omar Gonzalez Won Thanksgiving on Social Media

By Mike Cardillo

Omar Gonzalez is rapidly becoming my favorite player on the U.S. National Team. The Los Angeles Galaxy defender cemented that status back in September celebrating the win over Mexico that clinched a World Cup berth with a Bud Light.

Thursday the Maryland-product took to his Instagram account and posted this randomly amazing video gem. I won’t spoil it, but let’s just say it’s a lot better than athletes snapping photos of their candied yams and gravy. It’s not worthy of a NFSW tag, but … prepare to be surprised. Here’s the caption:

“On this Thanksgiving, I’m grateful for social media platforms, so I can share this with you. #sexysaxman”

Nicely done Omar. We are all eternally thankful for this use of social media.
