Mehhhico en America


I went last week to watch the most exciting football game one can watch in America, the US vs. Mexico.
If the US was looking for a place to receive support from the fans in the game, Arizona was the worst choice. There were over sixty thousand Mexican fans , one thousand American fans and three Jordanians.
We were planning to route for America, we had an American flag and of course I brought a Jordanian flag with me, no question about it. For most of the match I was holding it blocking the view of at least three people around me, way to make people love Jordan.

Once inside the stadium we had to chear for Mexico, it was kinda scary not to. When a bunch of guys stand in front of you holding a large Tableh you and the people around you scream with passion , "Tarabattatoo Mehhhhico" you gotta scream with them.
By the way, Mexican waves look nice on TV but it sucks when you're part of them. It makes you lose focus on the game and instead focus on when you have to stand up and raise your hands.

Despite their victory 2-0, I felt sorry for the US team, it really sucks when you play home and all the fans are chearing for the other team. Football has very long way until it becomes popular among Americans. It's naive to think that Beckham can change the popularity of football in America, Hello!! Pele and Beckenbauer played in America and that didn't change a thing!

I like Jay Leno joke, "David Beckham is coming to play in America. That will probably change the way Americans ignore soccer"

Maybe a good start is to call football with its name.

I was surprised they showed it on ESPN. I might have seen you on TV....just kidding.

That stadium in Glendale is absoultely stunning. The stadium acutually rolls over the the field...or is it the other way around with the playing surface moving into the stadium. And the roof opens. The REAL FOOTBALL is usually played there on Sundays and it's also hosting SUPERBOWL XLII next year.

Yep there were a lot of Mexicans. I was against the US, because I hate Landon. But like you said, it was a nice goal.....he burned the defenders and the goalie. Poor saps.
