Office Party: World Cup Edition

Advent may be divided during the American football season (our office Auburn/Alabama rivalry is legendary), but when it comes to the World Cup, we’re one step away from becoming an I Believe commercial. No one needed Jurgen Klinsmann’s get-out-of-work letter for the U.S. vs. Germany match on June 26: Advent closed up shop early, and everyone enjoyed pizza, beer, watermelon, and homemade cupcakes while cheering on the USMNT. We also hammed it up in front of the camera and hosted an intense ping-pong tournament. Check out the highlights below!
