Don’t forget about that touching display by Mexicans during a US/Mexico Olympic qualifying soccer match when they were chanting ‘Osama’.
I’d forgotten about that one... I’ll take a look and see if I can put that video in there, too. Much love coming from our friendly neighbors.
Any American who spends a dime in Mexico is a fool.
