Remember that killer snowball fight in Dupont during Snowpocalypse Part I? People flung snow on every crevice of the already snow covered circle and had a jolly good time.

Now, one of the organizers of that epic snow battle has some high World Cup hopes of bringing Dupont Circle some soccer.

Michael Lipin, 32, is working with his friend Aaron DeNu, 31, according to WTOP, on obtaining National Park Service and FIFA permits to screen at least the U.S. vs England opening match on a giant screen in the circle.

The biggest obstacle besides the permits is the $20,000 needed to finance a one-day screening … that and receiving the OK from ESPN to broadcast the game, since ESPN just so happens to own the game’s broadcasting rights.
