Skip to comments.LIVE THREAD: USA v. Mexico, CONCACAF Gold Cup, 9pm ET, Pasadena CA
Posted on 06/25/2011 4:55:21 PM PDT by tellw
A Mexico win would serve as convincing evidence that Mexico is once again the unquestioned leader in the region. It would also provide a confidence boost for a talented young team that could wind up ruling CONCACAF for the foreseeable future.
And a United States win? If the US team can knock off Mexicos Golden Boys, it would give the Americans their third Gold Cup title in four tournaments and continued bragging rights in a series they've dominated for the better part of a decade. It would also give the current US team a head start on Mexico as both teams transition into a new era, an era that should feature an even stronger and more competitive USA-Mexico rivalry.

Mexico is the home team.
Third World Kickball! YAY!
Hopefully the crowd doesn’t boo our national anthem this time (as it did the last time I saw these two teams play in So. Cal — L.A. Coliseum, late ‘90s.). Wouldn’t surprise me to see more Mexi flags than Old Glorys in the stands.
Same exact second. Alphabetically, houeto comes before humblegunner. My post should have been first.
Socker: Grown men in short pants running around and kicking one another in the shins while the crowd cheers for the Mexican shin-kickers.
Ties go to the coolest screen name. Humblegunner wins.
>Ties go to the coolest screen name. Humblegunner wins.
HG “swings” another way (cough)
I actually believe that the US is going to take this one. I’m rooting for them.
Appropriate for there to be a tie on a soccer thread.
Just checked the DTV guide — no listing for the match. Is this thing televised?
>Third World Kickball! YAY!
shouldn’t you be saying “fabulous”..
Suck up much? The question is, WHY???
Is it shown online?
Any post about `football’ must be immediately followed by the warning:
If America woke up with only two sports channels: ESPN dwarf-tossing or the FIFA world championship (yeehaa),
we’re going with the dwarves.
That was funny.
A matter of taste. If football, baseball and lying down on the runway at O’Hare on Saturday afternoon were my only choices, I’d wear sunscreen. Soccer and basketball on the other hand I find entertaining.
The “really cool” call this crap football. As they sip their lattes and rant about how “Bush screwed up the economy”.
I agree with humblegunner here, this is kickball for adults.
The sip lattes??? Good grief.
Especially around where I live I live down from block from Mexican food restaurant they got this game on this afternoon I hearing cheering down the block LOL!!
It on Univision network or Fox soccer channel check your local listings LOL!
Have those noxious foofoozellas fallen out of fashion? Not a soccer fan at all, but willing to cheer on a US team, even in curling if need be, lol. But, I’m not going to endure that inane buzzing racket.
Found it on ch. 619 on DTV. ...even though it wasn’t listed in the guide. See a whole lot of sombreros and green/white/red gear in the crowd.
Same here. Can't stand soccer, in fact. But if a U.S. win will depress tens of millions of Mexicans, I'll watch and root. ....if I can stay awake.
The announcer just said "Mexico has the support of the stadium."
I found the game on TV. Thanks for the thread or I would have missed the game.
The only thing worse than soccer is Mexico.
Why in hell is Freddy Adu starting at back? Must be an experiment to see if he can play back because he’s a POC on the sides or in front.
Mexico starting out strong which they have to do if they want to survive.
Yeah here on Verzion FIOS we getting in spanish on Channel 34 that Univision network and 195 here in SO CAL for Fox soccer channel
1-0 USA on a corner kick, Bradley header.
Is this game not on TV? wtf
Thanks. I saw it. Very sweet. A long time ago, I played in the LA Coliseum, exhibition game, before Mexico played the USA. Don’t remember if it was a qualifier game or friendly, but for sure an incredible moment in my life. Great game too. USA won.
Goal #2. Looking good Team USA.
try univision if you don’t have FSC.
Why don’t more Americans show for these games? Fear?
Spoke too soon. UGH! 2-2
What is the story with what the Mexicans were doing with the American player after Mexico’s first goal?
I’ve been trying to get the game over the Net, but no luck. For some strange reason univision is not connecting to the live feed! darnit
What’s the score now?????
2-2 Second half just started.
2-2 second half just started a minute or so ago.
3-2 Mexico. The crowd could be mostly deported, if anyone cares.
"....and the crowd goes crazy!"
Second time, heh. I’ll just let you do the updating if you like.
Just getting ready to post to you and ask you to do the updates, lol. I am going off line for the night. Hope the USA starts playing better. Night soccer fans.
Haha. Have a good night. I’ll update the thread with the score and whatnot then. Hopefully America gets back in form - they were playing pretty well to start.
