Anyone who thinks soccer is boring, missed a great match today. It's always great to beat Mexico at their game.

Hooray! I didn’t know they were playing. I’d have loved to watch. Soccer is fun to watch.

In Chicago, and the crowd was overwhelmingly for Mexico.

Great game. Although the game was played in Chicago, the crowd made it look like a home game for Mexico.

I don’t care about soccer at all, but anything that pisses off the illegals is fine with me.

They threw cups of piss on our players in the past and chanted, “Osama”

Those last few minutes were electrifying, although I thought Landon should have been the one to take that shot instead of Beasley on that 2-on-1. Mexico came close a few times after that. Our goalie was huge!!!!

Agreed. Chin missed an easy one as well. Beasley should have made the shot regardless. A great save in the end by Howard. Beautiful game.

Unfortunately for the U.S., the U.S. Soccer’s next matches are against South American countries, and the U.S. is bringing their second string players and third string players to these matches instead of bringing their best players.

I find that now, next to the Gators, I get more emotional for US Team soccer matches than any other sport. I was jumping up and down and cursing at my TV like I was watching the Gators play.

Thats that Bolshevik sport played by third world commie sympathizers throughout the anti-American world.

I guess we should be getting good at it with the 12 to 20 million illegals here.

Watching Univision right now....lmao...they have an in studio crowd of all Spanish chanting USA on one side holding the U.S. flag and the other wearing Mexico shirts and holding a Mexican flags...all the while being broadcast from Miami.

I wonder if Bush will grant a million or two visa’s as a gesture of goodwill and not to be insulting to Mexico? LOL

The park that is a part of my morning run route is always packed with Mexicans playing/watching soccer on Sunday.

I thought it odd that all the soccer fields were desolate and barren this morning.

Now I know why.

Betcha dollars to donuts the Spanish speaking USA flag wavers in the Univision Miami studio are all Cuban or Venezuelan ex-pats, not Mexicans.

Was Andres Cantor, the Argentine announcer guy there to yell, GOOOOOOOOOOOAL?

That guy cracks me up. He’s one of my favorite sports announcers even though I don’t speak Spanish. He really gets into the game.

The Mexican crowds were pretty well behaved for once, probably because there were plenty of American fans there ready to kick some a$$ if they did anything funny.

I feel about soccer the same way most Americans feel about hockey: When national pride is on the line, I care, and will watch. Otherwise, I couldn't give a rip.

What I don't understand is why people who claim baseball and soccer are boring can't get into hockey, because there's no standing around and great gaps between action -- the action is almost constant. Even in (American) football, the action only occurs about fifteen seconds at a time. One MLS player whose name escapes me said in ESPN The Magazine that he doesn't understand why Americans call what we call football "football" because only one player on the team kicks the ball. Says he, "They ought to call it 'throwball!'" and I have to concede he has a point.

WSJ blogger James Taranto refers to soccer as "metric football" because it's popular everywhere they use the metric system.

Yeah and the advertising signs around the field were in Spanish. What's up with that?

If the announcers hadn't said they were in Chicago, you'd think they were in Mexico.

It's perfectly understandable, this was a pretty intense tournament, and with the World Cup qualifying still yet to start, we need to start building our depth if we are ever to make the leap into the elites. This looks like a good opportunity to do that.

Mexico is a country that thinks they’re really great in soccer until reality hits them during major international competitions. They’re certainly not the same level as England, France, Italy, Portugal, Brazil and Argentina when it comes to national team competitions.

Hockey is a great game. But Versus & NBC do a p-poor job covering the games. Announcing & camera angles wise.

Are there protests in Mexico?

During the World Cup, soldiers/guards were posted near the American embassy in Mexico City after the Americans beat the Mexicans, and the Gold Cup seems to be the North American version of the World Cup.

Landon Donovan is a jerk. After another game, he just blew off a reporter for Univision--who was asking questions politely, too.

And in case some freepers are wondering, guessing that the blow off wasn't due to the reporter using Spanish, just that Donovan was being rude.

An American at a US-Mexico game needs to bring in a "Remember the Alamo" sign. At least that's what I would do. :)

I’ve also seen Donovan doing interviews on Univision IN SPANISH, so let’s not be quite so harsh, OK?

Miss USA, who was abused so ingraciously by the Mexican crowd during the Miss Universe pagent, was at the game also. She even did an interview with the US TV guys before the game and made reference to her shabby treatment in Mexico.

She had a US jersey on and was clearly looking for a little payback. Glad to see she got it!

Just ignore the idiot pansies that show up on every soccer thread.

I'll be the first to admit that just about every FR sports-related thread has some nay-sayer show up to cause trouble ("Baseball is boring"; "Football is for Neanderthals on steroids", etc). However, after a result like this, in an international match played in front of a bunch of frothing illegals, against a haughty opponent that won't show even a little class in defeat, if all they can do is show up with their usual assinine comments, well....

It says more about them (and their lack of patriotism and class, quite frankly) than anything else.

Now we need to beat them with a wall across the border.
