America take courage gfop jon rangos…

America.  Take Courage.  #GFOP Jon Rango’s 100-year-old grandma is behind you. Her name is Pearl, and she was born to Italian immigrant parents in Chicago circa 1914. Soccer may’ve only been America’s sport of the future since 1972, but Jon tells us his grandmother remembers hearing about the U.S. finishing third at the 1930 World Cup and thinking it was a “big deal.” She now resides in San Mateo, California. As you can see in the pictures, this is one woman who won’t fall for Cristiano Ronaldo’s perfectly-parted hair and sculpted stomach. She’s more of a Mix Diskerud kind of lady. Jon tells us that’s because she thinks Mix looks like him, which he assures us Mix does not. Thanks to Jon for sharing these pictures and his grandmother’s passion.
