For the first time, the US advances to the round of 8. 10 yellow cards 1 red card and a uncalled handball in the US 6 yard box. If you didnt get a chance to watch it like try to watch it later today. This is also the first time the US has had a shutout since 1950. The US players played a great game today. Lots of US soldiers at all the US games. Nice to see their support.

Damn... From the title of this thread, I thought that we had just downed 2 Mexican aircraft that had wandered across the border again. Things that make ya go hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

Mexico was sooooo pissed off at the outcome that not one player stuck around after the game to exchange jersey's. Uncalled handball? Wasn't there an uncalled handball with the Maradona hand of God goal? [:D]

Boo hoo Mexico [:D] Please post links to samples of their predictable whining,crying and ranting on how much they hate us. This probably hurts the individual "Mejicano"[rolleyes] more than the loss of Califonia, Texas and the whole Mexican-American war! Too bad. I have no sympathy for people who, instead of trying to educate and better themselves, or instead of trying to improve their own country and government, prefer to steal from their neighbor (US citizen, mostly of European desent) who was once poor but has pulled himself up by his bootstraps, fought in many wars, and has built an enviable country. When will they learn that only they can solve their own problems.

I've noticed a lot of papers and/or foreign press are now saying the US beat a mediocre team. Bunch of loozers. It should be fun to beat Germany. GO USA.

I'll be sitting in front of the TV, sipping German beer and eating American popcorn, one flag in each hand this Friday. I simply can't lose :o)

They fail to mention that you're talking about one of the top 16 teams in the world. To all those zzzzzzz responses: if you don't understand the game, you will never appreciate the skill and stamina required by soccer!
Link Posted: 6/18/2002 7:51:40 AM EDT
By stamina, are you referring to the stamina a viewer needs to watch a boring, scoreless game for two hours?

Soccer is very entertaining if you understand the skill required to handle and pass the ball like these guys can do. Much more action than baseball.

Already started. Headline from outr local paper "13 Held in Juarez Riot- Mexico's loss sparks vandalism." "Police took 13 people into custody after hundres of angry Mexican soccer fans stormed the streets when Mexico lost to the United States early Monday. The mob shattered car windows hurled objects at Americans and sent at least one El Paso woman to the hospital........." The "fans" probably went home, slept it off and then got up and went to their jobs here in the United States.

Does this mean we have to support the U.S. Curling Team, too?

At the Yuppie's Sports Cafe, fans stood and sang as the Mexican anthem was played. Many screamed obscenities at the "Star-Spangled Banner" -- signs of resentment at a wealthier, more powerful northern neighbor that Mexicans often feel treats them with disrespect. As the game drew to an end, fans sobbed. Some hid their faces in their team jerseys. "It hurts because it's Mexico, but it also hurts because it's the United States," Luviano said. Thousands of riot police ringed the Angel of Independence monument, a half-block from the U.S. Embassy, to prevent postgame disturbances. Cars were banned in the area and police searched for weapons or alcohol. The U.S. Embassy announced it would be closed Monday.

The attitude shown above is why I think many board members have questioned our relationship with Mexico over many, many topics since I've been here (and despite the occasional Mexican-American board member who doesn't see what all the fuss is about).
