U-S-A! U-S-A! I'm one of the lunatics who has been up at 11:30 PM and 4:30 AM PST to watch the Cup. I'm dying of lack of sleep. Most of our countrymen don't have a clue regarding what a great accomplishment the U.S. National Team has achieved. I've heard sour grapes about "backing in" but the play in the games vs. Portugal, Korea and Mexico make it clear that we belong where we are. Besides, did anyone watch the Raiders - Patriots playoff game? Talk about backing in!
Woo Hoo! We are finally an international power in soccer! And beating Mexico was just too sweet! BTW, what a bunch of cheap shot artists the Mexicans were. Particularly Blanco.
Living in Los Angeles its nice to see the US flags wave and the Mexican flags quietly disappear after a big hulabaloo in the media about loyalties. I'm from France originally and when the French won the world cup in our home town we didn't go thru the city waving a French flag.
