LIVE THREAD: USA v. Mexico, CONCACAF Gold Cup, 9pm ET, Pasadena CA
Fox Soccer ^ | 06/25/2011 | Fox Soccer

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 Mexico’s 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.

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.

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?

If America woke up with only two sports channels: ESPN dwarf-tossing or the FIFA world championship (yeehaa),
we’re going with the dwarves.

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.

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."

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.

They didn't.

Mexico starting out strong which they have to do if they want to survive.

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.
