Waffle House, a familiar American landmark throughout the South and Southeastern United States, has called for a “boycott” against Belgian waffles.
We don't believe in Belgium waffles

And of course, there’s THAT guy.
A Waffle House representative (possibly a 50-year-old chain smoker that calls everyone “Honey,”) said “We’re America’s place to eat, so of course we’re supporting Team USA.”
The US Men’s national soccer team takes on Belgium this Tuesday in the knockout stage of the World Cup. It is reported that Jozy Altidore will take part in the match, having suffered a hamstring injury in the first match of the tournament.
